Crisis in Mental Health Services — Social Work Action Network London public meeting, Saturday 8 November

From Social Work Action Network, London

Date, time, place, and speaker details

Our forthcoming meeting 'The Crisis in Mental Health Services' which we're hosting in London takes place on Saturday 8th November at John Barnes Library, 275 Camden Road, Islingon, N7 0JN from 10:30am-4:30pm. (Caledonian Road tube.)

The meeting features speakers including Peter Beresford (Chair of Shaping Our Lives and Professor of Social Policy), June Sadd (Mental Health Survivor and Trainer) plus front line social workers and Disabled People Against Cuts. We'd love you to come, but also to tell your colleagues, service users, friends, trade unions and others about it.

The plan of this meeting and the charter is build a coalition of user led organisations (ULOs), front line mental health practitioners and all others to build radical alternatives to austerity and fragmentation in Mental Health services.

Interest in this meeting and the SWAN Mental Health Charter gathers pace, so we must announce a change in venue - the meeting will now be held at the larger John Barnes Library (not Finsbury Library as previously advertised) 275 Camden Road Islington London N7 0JN - the nearest tube is Caledonian Road.

We hope to be able to offer free food from a local community group supporting adults at risk. There is free Saturday parking in a road adjacent to the venue and the venue is accessible to wheelchair users and people with mobility impairments.

The next general SWAN London evening meeting will be a few days beforehand on Tuesday 4th November at 18:30-20:30 at a venue TBC. This will focus on the effects of austerity on Social Work and the Frontline programme. We will also devote a section of the meeting to planning for the mental health meeting.
