Mental Health Minefield: Stories from the Frontline
From a long history of work in the mental health field, I’m bringing personal and professional experiences and anecdotes to inform and enliven my talk. Be prepared to be engaged!I will talk about the work of York St John's Counselling & Mental Health Clinic, which I founded and direct. With reference to the 'cast of characters' involved in delivering the clinic services, I will share powerful and poignant examples from my clinical and research work and from the clinic's mental health work. I will highlight specific research, giving examples of publications and ongoing projects – including Rich Knight’s work on disability, John Wilson’s on loss/bereavement, Gary Shepherd’s on anger management, my work on domestic/relational abuse and practice ethics.I will draw from personal, professional and academic worlds to talk about the significance of people being able to experience ‘mental health moments’, ‘memory making’, and ‘meaning making’ and I will outline the challenges of mental ill-health for individuals and communities.
