The Day

In this one-day seminar Karen & Alison will explore their experiences of running Crisis and recovery houses. There is much interest at the moment of how we can create alternatives to hospital admission and treatment. During the day they will share their experiences, what worked – what didn’t and ask questions of the audience as to what they would envisage the perfect safe space for recovery could be. Alison ran the very successful Anam Cara for 7 years a crisis and recovery service in the 1990’s in
Birmingham, much lauded in the mental health foundation Crisis project workbook and reported in the Guardian

Karen has also run residential Five-day workshops where people can explore recovery and make leaps in their recovery as well as Recovery camps, she also regularly uses aids like Skype to walk alongside someone on their recovery journey, creating environments where recovery can and does happen.
