The Lived Experiences of Distress (LEOD) research group, led by Professor Paula Reavey, welcomes you to contribute to a day of exciting discussions on the importance of our life experiences when considering mental health. There are many reasons to attend, as the day will include an introduction to the work being done by LEOD, Keynotes by Dr. Jacqui Dillon and Professor John Read, a number of parallel workshops on creative/innovative approaches to mental distress*, and an interactive panel discussion.
The event is suitable for:
*Mental distress refers to any unusual mental health experiences that may be typically thought of as symptoms of diagnosable mental health problems. These experiences can be self-defined and do not have to be a diagnosed mental health problem.
A limited number of bursaries are also available, so please get in touch if you have any financial concerns about attending. Please email [email protected].
