About this Event
We are part of an international movement of service users, survivors, activists, carers and professionals fighting for more humane, non-coercive mental health services.
People who hear voices, have visions or experience reality in different ways to those around them — and become overwhelmed by their experiences — are often referred to as experiencing ‘psychosis’. We believe that people can and do recover from difficulties which tend to be categorised under the term psychosis. This recovery can be with, without and sometimes despite psychiatric intervention.

Each speaker will talk for five minutes about why Soteria houses are needed more than ever in the UK now.
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion with the panel and trustees as well as hearing more about Soteria Network and our plans for the future and how you can become involved.
Our AGM will take place following the event at 4:30pm.
