Mental Health Arts Network: How Do We Gather?
4pm – 5pm
What should lockdown teach us about how we gather? Join us for an insightful conversation about how prejudice, illness, anxiety and other factors impact on our ability to gather, and what we should do about it. The discussion will bring together three recipients of this year’s SMHAF Gather artist commission – Jo Chukualim, Drew Taylor-Wilson and Bibo & Brian Keeley. Book your place here.
Discussion on Psychological Therapies – Lived Experience
Monday 9th May 10.00-11.30 (Zoom)
Tuesday 10th May 10.00-11.30 (Zoom)
VOX Scotland and The Alliance are facilitating a discussion on Psychological Therapies to support the Scottish Government in their commitment to developing National Quality Standards for Psychological Services and Psychological Therapies.
We are bringing together individuals with lived experience of accessing Psychological Therapies and carers of people with lived experience, in order to identify what good quality care and treatment looks like.
This event is aimed at people with lived experience of accessing Psychological Therapies and carers of people with lived experience.
Psychological Therapies are talking therapies which can help with common mental health problems like stress, anxiety and depression. These are delivered by trained staff one-to-one, online or in groups.
If you have experience of accessing Psychological Therapies, we would be delighted if you could join us to share your views. We will explore a number of areas of discussion including ensuring accessing to high quality care, involving carers in decision making and experiences with staff.
You can attend one of two virtual focus groups:
Monday 9th May 10.00-11.30
Tuesday 10th May 10.00-11.30
