Women and Mental Health Special Interest Group Conference 2021

Event Information

Creativity is intelligence having fun; a wild mind and a disciplined eye. It is breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. It is seeing what everyone else has seen and thinking what no one else has thought. Most of all, it takes courage.

Talks will be interwoven throughout the conference day with experiential workshops. We will hear from speakers who have recovered their mental health using creative means and explore how pressurised medical teams have used creativity to survive in stressful times.

We end with a reflective panel, welcoming your questions as we wonder what a Creative Adventure could bring to our tired NHS.

We will imagine, fold, crease, consider words, use our breath, and link together with some other ways throughout the day to enjoy and challenge ourselves in our responses to the world and in so doing challenge our work and practice.

Do get ready and join us!
