Mad Covid Symposium (Mad meet-up) 28.10.2020

Winter is coming and with the looming second ‘wave’, Mad Covid are holding a mad meet up!

We have 20 tickets left from 100, so if you’re interested in joining us, get your ticket quick here!

We have assembled a survivor / lived experience panel to discuss the impact COVID19 has had on the mad community.

As well as looking back, we will be exploring what mental health services and others can do to support us during the impending second ‘wave’.

The event will kick off with our panellists:

  • Andrew Grundy, Service User Researcher, Twitter: @acgrundy
  • Tamar Whyte, Lived Experience Practitioner, Twitter: @tamar_whyte

and more to be confirmed shortly!

A question and answer session / open discussion will follow.

Survivors, service users and allies all welcome. The event will be hosted on Zoom and a Zoom invite will be shared with attendees before the event. A big thanks to NSUN who have supported us to purchase Zoom through their COVID19 grants.

Our aim is to write a short account of our discussion, which can be shared with mental health services, professionals, organisations and anyone else. We will also be recording the event so we can share it with the wider community.

This is a free event, however, attendees are able to make a donation to our Hardship Fund if they wish!

The event will take a UK focus, however, allies and survivors from across the globe are welcome to attend.

Mad Covid is a service user / survivor led collective that began in March 2020, you can follow us on Twitter and Instagram @MadCovid and you can read more about us here.
