Dangerous liaisons? The myth of mental illness and risk

Event Date:

 Dangerous liaisons? Dangerous liaisons?

The RCN will host a session on risk and mental illness on 10 October, held at Nottingham Contemporary, Weekday Cross, Nottingham.

Speakers at the event will debate on if the continuing focus on risk from people with mental health conditions has a stigmatising and traumatic effect on people using mental health services. According to the RCN, this reinforces the notion that people who are mentally unwell are an inevitable risk to society and that thorough risk assessment can minimise or eliminate this threat. Patrick Callaghan, professor of mental health nursing, School of Health Sciences and Professorial Fellow of the Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham, will lead the session.
