Members of Suresearch have attended a national round table discussion focusing on prevention of mental distress from the perspective of people with lived experience. The event, on Wednesday 8th November, was organised by University of Birmingham’s Mental Health Policy Commission. It was co-facilitated by Tina Coldham and Sarah Carr, both of whom have experience of mental distress and using services, with assistance from Jerry Tew and Karen Newbigging, who research and teach at the University of Birmingham and are Suresearch members. This is part  of the Policy Commission’s initiative  – ‘Closing the Mental Health Treatment Gap’
