How can communities come together to partner for change? Join us at the ESRC Centre for Society and Mental Health 2022 Festival to find out!

How are successful research partnerships established? How are they nurtured and strengthened? How can everyone involved in a partnership benefit from collaboration? And how do we know if positive change has actually been achieved? Find out over four days of workshops, poetry, discussion, networking, arts and crafts!

From Saturday 18th - Thursday 23rd June, we are inviting researchers, as well as service users, survivors, third sector members, policy makers, and members of the public, to come together to share experiences and discuss how partnerships can be designed to facilitate change.

Through networking, discussion, workshops and creative expression, this exciting event will provide opportunities to exchange knowledge and find new ways of working together to better understand the relationships between challenges facing society and mental health.

Activities will be led by Black Thrive Lambeth, The McPin Foundation, Jack Drum Arts, Thrive LDN, Traumascapes, Survivors Voices and the Service User Research Enterprise, as well as Centre researchers.

We celebrate the final day of the Festival with a full day of activities at the Science Gallery on Wednesday 23rd June. Click here to sign up:
