Most of us would agree that we need to work together to create real and sustainable changes in those services that seek to support those with lived experience of psychosis and their loved ones. However, these collaborations can be hampered by underlying tensions that often go unspoken and unexplored.
This event provides a safe and inclusive space where we can respectfully hear from many different voices. Rather than filling the air with information, we want to create an opportunity for meaningful discussion stimulated by the input of people with varying types of experience. We want to openly explore a) what gets in the way of walking alongside one another and b) how can we address this?
Issues explored will include: language; power; risk; participation; culture; beliefs; rights; respect.
