There are many reasons to attend. The day will include:

  • An introduction to the work being done by the LEOD research group
  • Keynotes by Dr Jacqui Dillon and Professor John Read
  • A number of parallel workshops on creative and innovative approaches to mental distress
  • An interactive panel discussion

This event is suitable for:

  • People with lived experience of distress
  • Anyone involved in supporting people with experiences of mental distress, including friends, family members, mental health professionals, social workers
  • Academics, researchers, and students
  • Anyone interested in mental health

Poster presentations will be invited for display during the event. Posters do not have to take standard academic format, and can be related to any topic relevant to mental health and distress. For further details on how to submit please see the submission guidelines.

Refreshments will be provided including a buffet lunch and drinks reception following the event.
