Improving Decision Making in Mental Health Workshop @ The Dragon Cafe

We’d like to extend a warm invitation to our next workshop at The Dragon Cafe – an evening exploring decision making in mental health with Sophie Stammers, a researcher in philosophy from the University of Birmingham.

Sophie is one of the researchers on Project Perfect – a five-year European Research Council funded project exploring judgements of rationality and agency in mental healthcare led by Professor Lisa Bortolotti.

Lisa, Sophie and the team have been awarded additional funding to explore how biases and assumptions might affect judgements of mental capacity in accordance with the Mental Capacity Act. They are preparing a short briefing note for policy makers, which will recommend further training for mental healthcare teams.

If you have experience of using mental health services, particularly experience of decisions of mental capacity, and/or experience of working in mental health services, particularly experience of making mental capacity or related decisions, we would like to hear from you.

Come and join us for a cuppa and a conversation exploring a diversity of experiences and perspectives, and contribute your ideas to the briefing note.

We’ll be meeting in Space 2 at The Dragon Cafe from 6:30pm – 8:00pm on Monday 9th March.

The Dragon Cafe pops up in The Crypt of St George the Martyr Church on Borough High Street, SE1 1JA, on Mondays from midday to 8:00pm (map).
