A PLACE OF SANTUARY: ESSEX AS A LANDSCAPE FOR MENTAL HEALTH
Nov 10, 2018 2:00pm - 4:00pm talk/event
For the many land settlements and self-sufficient communities established in Essex in the early twentieth century providing an escape from the poverty and mental distress of the slums of east London, to the retreats such as Greenwoods in Stock and the Othona community at Bradwell, as well as the work at Runwell Hospital, Essex has been a home for new approaches to mental well-being - a tradition which continues to this day in the work of Trustlinks, Spiralseed and others. A panel discussion with Mandy Barber, Graham Burnett and Ken Worpole.
