PeerZone is delighted to be bringing the peer-led paradigm shift seminar to Edinburgh this September following on from the success of our Wellington 2017 event.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from successful international initiatives outside the dominant bio-medical paradigm. Presentations will celebrate alternative ways to support people with mental distress primarily from a lived experience perspective. Presenters will also share frameworks and resources developed and designed by people with lived experience of mental distress for people in distress and their supporters.
This is an opportunity to showcase the experts by celebrating experience model with international models of best practice.
