Campaign to Save Mental Health Services in Norfolk and Suffolk Open Meeting

Invitation to our Anniversary Open Meeting on Thursday 27th November, 7.30-9.30 p.m. Vauxhall Centre, Norwich NR2 2SA

Find out more about what this campaign is doing to fight the cuts & crisis in mental health services.  The Campaign has succeeded in uniting clinicians, service-users and carers in a powerful protest against cuts.

 Speakers will include:

The Lifeworks Campaign in Cambridge, where service-users occupied their own mental health day centre to prevent the local NHS Trust from closing it

Peter Beresford, Professor of Social Policy, Brunel University, London, mental health academic and service-user

Emma Corlett, Community Mental Health Nurse, Norfolk County Council Mental Health Champion and Unison media spokesperson

Daniel Taggart, University of Essex, on the impact of austerity on mental health

Irene Lampert, Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, on the impact of the radical redesign on services for children

Mark Harrison from Equal Lives, a service-user led advocacy organisation, on the problems his family have had accessing services

Most important of all we hope to have a cross section of patients, carers, mental health professionals and other interested groups so that we can discuss the strengths and weaknesses of our Campaign and renew our future strategy to fight the coming cutbacks.

If you have any queries, please contact Terry Skyrme or Sally Whitman on 01263 825967 or email norfolksuffolkcrisis@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you on the 27th
