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.
