Re:Creating Psychiatry


Drop in

This event includes British Sign Language provision.

Thursday 24 November 2016


Join us for the second of two discussion events exploring issues in the contemporary mental health system. These 'Shrink Radio' conversations will be curated by Re:Create Psychiatry, a service-user-led exploratory platform based at the Dragon Café, which brings together people with lived experience of mental ill-health and medical professionals to stimulate dialogue and collaboration. Transcending the traditional roles of ‘expert’ and ‘patient’ enables those involved to better respond to challenges in the current model of mental health service.

The focus for this conversation will be: 'State of Emergency: is there space for empathy in a time of crisis?'

This event is FREE. First come, first seated. Please note that our events can get busy and space is limited. Doors open 18.45. This event has been extended to finish at 21.00 but there will be an opportunity to leave at 20.30 for anyone who needs to.

Please note, the conversation will be recorded and added to SoundCloud up to two weeks after the event.

This event will be British Sign Language interpreted. To book a place with a view of the interpreter, or if you have other accessibility requests or requirements, please email access@wellcomecollection.org or call us on 020 7611 2222.
