    Hi everyone,

    There is a conference coming up on June 29th at London South Bank University called 'Experience Matters: Rethinking Lived Experience in Mental Health Communities'.

    Hosted by the Lived Experiences of Distress (LEOD) research group at LSBU, led by Professor Paula Reavey, this event will encourage a day of exciting and open discussions on the importance of our life experiences when considering mental health.

    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/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
