NISCHR.JPG

Mental Health and wellbeing in times of trouble

Short summary: In the face of economic, environmental and social upheaval, how can we expect to meet the increased demand on, and stresses faced by, individuals, families and communities? This conference will present ideas and practical examples of how users and professionals can join together to weather the current turbulence, through their interpersonal and community support networks.
