Thematic sessions will range from the importance of narrative and meaning making in mental health, to the pedagogical use of the arts as progressive intervention, and arguments for a radical shift in mental health practice. The programme is enriched by theatre performances on the theme of mental health and an art exhibition. Delegates will have the opportunity to contribute their responses through a 'long table' discussion; this will provide the stimulus for the panel discussion with stakeholders and international experts that will round off the conference.  

We welcome mental health professionals, researchers and any members of the general public interested in the way the arts can contribute to mental health.
