Event description

Description

We're excited to announce our 5th Compassionate Mental Health gathering.

Finding Sanctuary & Space is taking place on Tuesday 27 to Thursday 29 November at Broughton Hall near Skipton in Yorkshire. It's an exceptional opportunity for you to explore a range of compassionate approaches for living and working with mental distress.

Be part of a community of peers, mental health professionals, family members and policy makers, who all want to work together to restore a sense of trust, belonging and connection. Take part in conversations that matter and have a lasting impact in your life and work.

The event is for anyone curious about compassionate approaches, including people and families with personal experience, front-line staff, commissioners, managers, clinicians, GPs, policymakers and Third Sector staff. Together we'll explore new ways of thinking about service provision, and how we care for ourselves and each other within our families, communities and workplaces.

Join us in changing the conversation around mental health, challenging stigma and raising expectations - by moving away from labels that frame mental distress as disorders for life, and towards safe, healing mental health services that people want to use when they are in crisis.

Hear from top speakers and facilitators about compassionate approaches, like Open Dialogue, mindfulness and voice dialogue, including:

  • Will Hall - mental health advocate, counsellor, writer, and trainer. Will advocates the recovery approach to mental illness and is recognised internationally as an innovator in the treatment and social response to psychosis. He is especially know for his work around trauma, and a harm reduction approach to medications.
  • Catherine Thorley - one of the first Helsinki qualified Open Dialogue trainers in the UK and a clinical lead for Peer Supported Open Dialogue at NELFT
  • Rufus May has an international reputation for training people in holistic and recovery based approaches to mental health problems. His interest in psychological approaches to psychosis and recovery is rooted in his own experiences of psychosis and recovery in his late teens.
  • See the full list of speakers

Sarah Stone - Executive Director for Samaritans Cymru and former Deputy Commissioner for Older People in Wales - will co Chair alongside Malcolm Stern and Benna Waites.
