A Disorder for everyone: exploring the culture of psychiatric diagnosis on 8 December, 2017
This day is for anyone who is interested in and concerned about the current debates in ‘mental health.’ It provides a space to explore the critical questions of the day around the biomedical model and the narrative of ‘diagnosis and disorder!’
There is increasing evidence that nature has a positive impact on mental wellbeing. Mark Christie and Fiona Cole – from the University of Cumbria – recently did some research looking at the experience of volunteers with mental health problems who attended a centre (in a woodland setting) that promoted health and wellbeing through green exercise.
Mark and Fiona will be joining us at CCrAMHP on Friday 11 August 2017 from 6-8pm to talk about their research and get in to a conversation about nature and wellbeing.
We will be meeting at Fork2Fork in Lancaster
