Re:Creating Psychiatry


Drop in

Thursday 29 September 2016


Join us for the first 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: 'Psychiatrists and Their Patients: An ethos of doing with, a practice of doing to?'

This event is FREE. First come, first seated. Please note that our events can get busy and space is limited. Doors open 18.45.

The second conversation will take place on 24 November and will be BSL interpreted.
