A three day gathering to explore a radical shift in the mental health conversation.
Anyone curious about a fresh approach, including people and families with personal experience of mental distress, frontline staff, commissioners, managers, clinicians, policymakers and Third Sector staff.
Our influential speakers and facilitators are passionate about transforming mental health and changing the script. All believe that with the right support recovery from mental illness can happen and crisis can be a transformative process.
Coming Home to Ourselves is a three day gathering to explore alternative approaches for living and working with mental distress – set in the Ammerdown Retreat Centre in the heart of beautiful Somerset countryside. Arrive on Sunday afternoon, and leave after lunch on Wednesday – refreshed, recharged and having reconnected to our growing community.
The programme builds on on our core themes of connection, community and compassionate systems change.
Together we’ll explore new ways of thinking about service provision, and how we care for ourselves and each other within our families, communities and workplaces. We’ll be moving away from labels that frame mental distress as disorders for life, and towards safe, healing mental health services that people want to use when they are in crisis.
Register Today and join us in changing the conversation around mental illness, challenging stigma and raising expectations.
