Putting our compassionate rage into action

There is so much anger in the ether around mental health services; valid and justifiable anger – I get it, believe me I do.

However, I have learned the painful way that all expressing anger achieves is building walls and pushing us further from finding solutions…

We have to stop focusing on the problem, and start focusing on the solutions

Most of us are wanting to get to the same destination (a new post-patriarchal paradigm) but via different doorways – let’s focus on the destination rather than the doorway; where are our bridges?

How do we bring in the narrative of ‘Post-traumatic growth’ and the switch from the victimisation of those suffering into possibility for transformation into services?

What is needed in services to support these experiences in a more helpful way? What can we include in MH care to enable people to thrive and not just survive?

This is what we will discuss during our ‘conference with a difference’ on 17th Jan 2020;

“How does the Power Threat Meaning Framework relate to those who perceive their experience in transformative terms, and how could it be used to support this?”


#EmergingProud sees the ‘spiritual’ element of the equally important BIO-PSYCHO-SOCIAL-SPIRITUAL aspects of what it means to be wholly human as understanding a crisis as a journey of growth, connection and transformation.

Which doorway are you coming through? Whether it’s the psychedelic community, mental health arena, environment activism or a political lens we believe you hold vital pieces of the puzzle to bring to the discussion…
