Our friends at the University of Leeds and the Economic and Social Research Council are offering a free seminar series which focuses on developing new approaches to professionalism in mental health. The starting point is that professionalism should be informed by the principle of authentic power-sharing between service users, carers and professionals.
Speakers and participants at the seminar series will come from diverse groups: service users, carers, professionals working in third sector, and public and statutory organisations, and academics. Academics in the research team are from diverse disciplinary backgrounds: mental health nursing, philosophy, political science, psychiatry, social work and sociology. Together we aim to build network of expertise which will inform the values and practices of mental health care.
The first of the seminars will take place at the University of Leeds January 5th, see the flyer here for more details and to register.
