In this one-day symposium, learn how the creative arts can be integrated with mindfulness-based mental health interventions for individuals with post-natal depression.
Join us for talks, experiential exercises and networking in the intimate surrounds of a North London art cafe.
Speakers include Dr Tamara Russell, clinical psychologist and creator of the Body in Mind training programme; Liz Finegold, artist and psychological therapist; Dr Chrissy Jayarajah, psychiatrist and quilting enthusiast; and Rosie Lowman, director of the perinatal mental health charity Cocoon Family Support.
This unique event provides the opportunity to hear from diverse perspectives on post-natal depression, and to find out about Sew Mindful: a cutting-edge research initiative falling at the intersection of creativity and mindfulness.
Earlybirds will automatically be entered into a raffle to win a variety of mindfulness related goodies.
