On Monday 13th November, we held an evening of discussion and reflection on the challenges of placing pscyhosocial approaches to psychosis at the heart of the NHS.
Our guest panel featured ISPS UK Committee Members John Read and Neil Caton as well as founder of Drayton Park Crisis House founder Shirley McNichols. Over 50 people joined us in the Rotunda Room in Blackfriars Living Space, including many from the ISPS UK membership.
A core aim of ISPS UK is to promote social and psychological approaches to psychosis – yet in a culture of increasing cuts and short term fixes, this is no easy task. We discussed some of these tensions and challenges, as well some practical steps we can all take to address them.
