    When?: Saturday 31st March 2012
    Where?: Time to Change Village, Riverside walkway at London’s South Bank

    • The Time to Change Village is a pop-up space where people can learn about mental health in a fun and interactive way. The Village has all the things you might expect to find in villages and towns across the world: a health centre, library, café, post office, cinema and a news agent. But there’s a twist –each of these areas will provide a unique opportunity to get people talking.- By chatting to volunteers at the Time to Change Village, the public can find out more about what it’s really like to live with a mental health problem. This helps to challenge the stereotypes which often lead to discrimination.Volunteer places are available on a first come first served basis with a deadline to respond by:
      Monday 19th March– Find out more about how you can get involved on the Time to Change website – www.time-to-change.org.uk/londonvillage

    The Voice of People with Experience of Schizophrenia or Psychosis

    • We want to hear from people with experience of mental health issues.
      The focus of the work of the Schizophrenia Commission is care, support and treatment for schizophrenia or psychosis.
    • We know psychiatric diagnostics labels are often difficult – because they change, they maybe unhelpful to recovery, they don’t emphasise the full experience of managing serious health problems but tend to focus on problems and symptoms. Individuals manage their distress in many different ways – and we want to hear from you about your experiences.- View the more information regarding this event in the invite flyer CLICK HERE:The Voice of People with Experience of Schizophrenia or Psychosis Invite Flyer

    Carers Privacy & Dignity Focus Group

    SLaM (South London & Maudsley) are currently running a series of Focus Groups in order to highlight issues with Privacy & Dignity within both inpatient and outpatient care spheres.
    To be treated with privacy and dignity can mean many things to different people. Examples of these include, attitudes and behaviours of staff, communication, the environment, privacy to protect peoples modesty, confidentiality, to have nutritional needs met and to be free from abuse.

    • It is often the case that carers know a huge amount about where there are holes in service provision and where problems are to be found, as well how to fix them and improve things!
    • If you are a carer then this focus group is for you or perhaps you know or have a great carer in which case please let them know.View the flyer for this event CLICK HERE:Carers Privacy Dignity Flyer 2012
