If you're free on Monday 12th June come along to the fabulous "York Festival of Ideas" event about Reimagining Healthcare: Treating the body and mind at King's Manor, York.
Our very own Claire Carswell will be chairing a panel discussion to hear from people with lived experience of severe mental illness and chronic conditions - service users, carers and healthcare professionals - and to find out how and why our healthcare system needs to change. Panellists will include members of DIAMONDS Voice.
