Why do we need Soteria Houses more than ever in the UK now?

Why do we need Soteria Houses more than ever in the UK now? Tickets, Sat, Jan 30, 2021 at 3:00 PM | Eventbrite

Event Information
Soteria Network UK promotes the development of drug-free or minimum medication therapeutic environments for ‘psychosis’

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.

Speakers :

Brigid Bowen, Founder and Director of Compassionate Mental Health CIC

Anne Cooke, Director of School of Psychology Salomans Centre, University of Canterbury

Eamonn Flynn, ISPSUK Trustee and family member

Phil Thomas, Writer and Psychiatrist

Mark Trewin, Mental Health Social Work Lead with Chief Social Worker Dept Health and Social Care

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.
