Conferences 2017 - 2018
Let's Talk About Mental Health 2018
Pathfinder are delighted to announce this year's Mental Health Conference is now open for booking.
The event will be chaired by mental health champion, paralympian and author, Elizabeth Wright (@esioul)
There will be key notes from:
The award-winning mental health expert Dr Nihara Krause (@drniharakrause), a chartered clinical psychologist with over 24 years experience in the field.
Author and blogger, Claire Eastham (@claireylove) who will give her unique and honest insight into living with anxiety, why it happens and how you can learn to deal with it. Humour and advice included!
The cost of the event covers inclusion to the three key note speakers, in addition to selecting 3 workshops across the day.
The conference will run from 9am to 2pm to enable us to keep the cost as low as possible, while ensuring you are able to have access to a wide selection of key topics. There will be hot and cold drink and snacks available at all times across the event.
The majority of sessions (unless otherwise stated) will be 60 minutes. The aim is to give delegates some key information and/or strategies. All of the deliverers are experts in their field, and attending delegates can speak with them further if they wish to book or investigate longer training sessions.
If there are areas you need in your setting and do not feel they have been covered, please do contact Kate Sowter (email@example.com) to discuss it further.
