This national conference will bring together a broad range of expertise and experience to provide a unique opportunity to explore this emerging complementary approach to mental health care.
Researchers and clinicians will report on their findings together with service users and support group leaders who are experts in the self-help approach. The day will offer a valuable learning and networking opportunity for statutory and voluntary sector professionals responsible for the mental health and social care of adults, as well as service users and interested members of the public.
The programme, which includes refreshments and lunch, also gives delegates the opportunity to gather in smaller working groups for seminars on a range of nutritional topics, led by leading nutritionists working in the field. The seminars include nutritional approaches to:
- Anxiety and Depression with Kate Neil (Nutrition practitioner and Director of NS3UK’s Centre for Nutrition Education)
- Behaviour and Criminality with Peter Bennett (Director of Restorative Health Co Ltd and former Superintendent)
- Cravings and Addictions with Margaret Moss (Nutritionist and Director of Nutrition & Allergy Clinic)
- Mood swings and PMS with Dr Marilyn Glenville (Nutrition practitioner and author)
- Schizophrenia with Lorraine Perretta (Nutrition practitioner and author)
The day will conclude with all speakers and seminar leaders on stage to take questions and discuss issues raised during the day.
The fees that are charged by Pavilion reflect the fact that most delegates who attend Pavilion conferences are funded to attend by their employing organisation. However, there are reduced rates for students and a limited number of free places for services users. For further details please contact Pavilion Publishing on 01273 623222 or visit www.pavpub.com.
