As part of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, Centre for Mental Health and Mental Health Foundation will be running a half-day workshop on trauma-informed care for women, an approach that is fundamentally concerned with creating conditions that reduce harm and promote healing in individuals who have experienced trauma.
We are national mental health charities carrying out research on women’s mental health support in order to make practical recommendations for services to use in the future. We are keen to benefit from the perspectives of a wide-range of people who have experienced trauma-informed care or who have an interest in it. Through the workshop discussions, we hope to gain an insight into the different ways in which trauma-informed care is understood, applied and experienced by service users, carers and other professionals.
If you are a woman who has received trauma-informed care in any setting, or a professional who has worked with trauma-informed approaches, and you would be interested in attending the workshop and contributing your experiences, please contact Jo Wilton at Centre for Mental Health (firstname.lastname@example.org / 020 7717 1558)
Tea and coffee will be included, and an honorarium of £45 will be offered to attendees with lived experience.
