Turning towards Clarity is a two-day experiential event in Cardiff, Wales, building on our core themes of connection, community and compassionate systems change.
As with all Compassionate Mental Health events, we are calling for a more compassionate, trauma informed approach to mental distress. Ultimately we hope to work with others towards a new integrative approach, and inspire the growth of safe, healing mental health services that people want to use when they are in crisis.
We are championing a range of compassionate approaches that move away from a disease focused, disorder model, to one of recovery and personal growth. Our aim to is to challenge stigma and raise expectations, and give people an immersive experience of compassionate community.
A key message of all Compassionate Mental Health events is choice not coercion – compassion not control, and the understanding that a mental health crisis can become a meaningful turning point and catalyst for change. Along with many other critical voices – we are calling for a radical shift in the way we understand mental health, changing the script, challenging stigma and raising expectations.
