GMW’s Psychosis Research Unit is hosting an innovative conference - “Challenging the Stigma of Psychosis: Advances in Research, Theory & Practice”. The two day event will bring together people with lived experience of psychosis, clinicians, academics and researchers to exchange and present cutting edge research, theory and practice on the topic of stigma and empowerment. The mission of the conference is to share promising practice and disseminate scientific research. The event will raise awareness of how societal and internalised stigma affects the lives of people who experience psychosis and increase skills to challenge and overcome stigma.
A central feature of the conference is learning about empowerment through lived experience and we have the Rachel Waddingham and Dr Eleanor Longden delivering talks in the symposia. We are delighted that the workshop and keynote will be delivered by distinguished professor of psychology, Professor Patrick Corrigan, from the University of Illinois. Professor Corrigan is internationally renowned for his research on the topic of stigma and discrimination. We are also delighted that Professor Graham Thornicroft who is also internationally renown for his research on the topic of stigma and discrimination will deliver a keynote.
