Plenary sessions and parallel workshops cover therapy approaches and service innovations:

  • Trauma and psychosis
  • Current work in different therapy models (includes cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic therapy, arts therapies, open dialogue approach and others)
  • Service user perspectives on therapies
  • Early psychosis
  • Recovery, including recovery for family members
  • Peer support and peer led initiatives
  • Making mental health services more

ISPS UK welcomes people with personal experience of psychosis, and also family members and carers:   

  • We invite you to a brief welcome meeting at the start of the conference, where there will be chance to meet other people with personal experience, and members of the ISPS UK committee.
  • There will be a further chance for meeting others with personal experience at an informal meeting on the evening of Tuesday 3rd October.
  • If you have any questions big or small, or would like someone to talk things over with, there will be a contact person available throughout the conference.
