Part of Madlove: Take Over. 29 November 2019.
Academic partner Ursula Read.
This event presented a chance for everyone affected by mental health in St Helens to be in the same room to consider ‘How Can We Do This Better?’ How can we work better together, to support each other and improve mental health care?
One of the final events of the St Helens Madlove Takeover that I curated during November, How Can We Do This Better was a hybrid of consensus decision making (spokes councils) and process led artist workshop.
The event brought together people with lived experience and those from the mental health industry to consider what can be done better, what should cease to happen, how we listen to each other, how we support people in crisis and how we change the narrative of suicide capital in St Helens.
