ISPS UK Webinar
Burnout in Mental Health Services: Abdullah Mia and Matthew Broome, in conversation
Thursday 20 January 2022, 7pm- 8pm GMT
The pandemic has created the conditions for burnout, exhaustion and moral injury to thrive in mental health services. Against an existing backdrop of cuts, Covid-19 has put intense pressure on health services, including through the reallocation of resources. Over the past two years, secondary and specialist mental health services have often found themselves sidelined and under-resourced. People who experience psychosis have not always been able to access support, and some have found themselves actively neglected. Mental health practitioners have been both overstretched, and acutely aware of the limits of the support they are able to provide.
This conversation will explore the burnout experienced by many mental health practitioners through the lens of moral injury, where people have engaged in, failed to prevent, or witnessed acts that conflict with their values or beliefs. How has the pandemic affected practitioners and teams in secondary and specialist mental health services? How have the conversations generated by Black Lives Matter impacted on racialised people in the sector?
A one hour webinar can’t provide a fix or clear answers, but naming things might offer a way forward. At a time where so many of us are exhausted and isolated, this is a small space for solidarity and dialogue around the complexities of moral injury and burnout in mental health services.
Dr Abdullah Mia is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist within an NHS male medium-secure unit in Birmingham. He has additional training in group analysis and organisational dynamics, along with different therapeutic approaches. In addition to his professional training, he is engaged in community psychology work to develop his local community to develop groups to build connection and support inclusive and across a number of diverse characteristics.
Abdullah is interested in how to support oppressed voices to be heard in places to create change and shine a light on alternative narratives. This involves the valuing and building of networks of resistance against conscious and unconscious anxious enactments, which can lead to abuses of power and authority. In particular, he focuses on how institutional and systemic racism impacts upon the mental health of employees and people who use services.
Professor Matthew Broome is an academic psychiatrist and Director of the Institute for Mental Health at the University. He is a leader in the field of early psychosis and in the philosophy and ethics of mental health.
Their conversation will be introduced by Akiko Hart, ISPS UK Chair, and CEO of the National Survivor User Network.

Researching Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for Psychosis: A step towards better care?
Keynote Speaker: Bent Rosenbaum
Other speakers and Panel Members Include: Neil Caton, Marcus Evans, Paul Jenkins, Brian Martindale, Felicitas Rost, Alison Summers & Rachel Waddingham
This ISPS UK & The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation trust joint conference is not just for researchers – it’s for anyone who wants to increase the availability of psychodynamic therapy in our ‘evidence-based-medicine’ culture.
In recent years, partly because of the lack of evidence provided by ‘randomised trials’, psychodynamic therapy has become less available to people who experience psychosis. This conference is intended to be a step towards enabling people with psychosis to access wider range of therapy that meets their needs. In the current climate of ‘austerity’ and ‘evidence-based practice’, research can play a crucial role in this.
This conference brings together people with experience of psychosis, carers/family, clinicians and researchers to explore ideas about what research might be helpful and possible. The starting point for discussion will be a presentation by Bent Rosenhaum, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, who led recent Danish trials of psychodynamic therapy for people with first episode psychosis.

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT
Navigating the tensions and opportunities for collaboration between lived and professional experience of psychosis.
10.00 – 4.30pm, Saturday 11 July 2015
@ Amnesty International Human Rights Action Centre,
17-25 New Inn Yard, London, EC2A 3EA
A mix of people with lived experience of psychosis, ‘carers’ and professionals who will speak from their own experience of these issues to stimulate frank, respectful and open discussion.
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.
ISPS UK Members: Free (but we encourage people to consider making a donation to help us cover costs)

The conference aims to:
1) Set the scene for the introduction of Peer-Supported Open Dialogue in KMPT, as a treatment approach for people experiencing acute psychological crises such as psychosis.
2) Understand this movement in the context of the national and international development of Open Dialogue as an approach with a significant evidence base that sees families and wider support networks included in treatment from the first contact.
3) Highlight the research evidence that has been created over the last two decades and describe the current situation in which various Trusts around the country, including KMPT, are being recruited to undertake a national RCT research programme starting in 2016.
4) Think about how the philosophy of the Open Dialogue approach may influence the wider transformation of mental health services over time.
International Keynote Speaker
JAAKKO SEIKKULA – Professor of Psychotherapy, Department of Psychology, University of Jyvaskyla, Finland.
Jaakko has been mainly involved in developing Family and Social Network based practices in psychiatry with psychosis and other severe crises. Since the early 80’s until 1998 he was a member of the team in Western Lapland in Finland for developing the comprehensive Open Dialogue approach, which Jaakko has since been studying both concerning the processes of dialogues and the outcomes in treatment of acute psychosis.
In the afternoon there will be other important speakers who will represent the viewpoints of those involved in the project, a discussion experience and a plenary.
Conference Fee – Free (including lunch and refreshments)
(Places will be available free of charge to Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Trust employees – allocated on a first come, first served basis)

Exploring our role supporting people with psychosis.

- ‘The culture of nursing, compassionate care systems and psychosis’
- Capitalising on the contribution of mental health nurses in psychosocial intervention implementation’
There are increasing calls for a paradigm shift in the way we deliver care for those who experience psychosis – moving from medical model understandings and treatment to a formulation based approach that draws on the individual’s lived experience. Such a shift is a challenge, requiring a willingness to respect, attend to, explore and respond empathetically to the narrative of the carer and service user.
This conference will provide an opportunity to explore these challenges and identify the implications for mental health nursing practice in collaboration with our multi-disciplinary teams, service users and carers.
Combining keynote presentations with opportunities for group discussion, we hope to highlight the ‘lived experience’ of mental health nursing, with an emphasis on capturing the current reality for nurses in practice and exploring our evolving role and opportunities for future directions.
