“Exploring Transformative Practices and Service Models”

22 to 24 June,  2016


Attitudes towards mental ill health vary among people from different cultures, ethnic background and countries. Mental ill health is often stigmatised in many cultures forcing people to live in denial or preventing them from seeking help when they require.

The aim of this conference is to discuss and debate transformatory practices, appropriate and acceptable services models from diverse cultural communities around the world.

This conference is for medical, health and social care professionals and service providers, including psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and social workers and educationalists. This conference is also for service commissioners, service users and carers, academics, policy makers, and third sector organisations.
