As more and more mental health services embrace a recovery approach to care, this conference will give opportunity to explore the role which spirituality has to play in recovery. This conference is an opportunity for clinicians, service users and carers, chaplains, faith and community leaders and anyone else interested to come and think about how those interested in recovery and those who wish to promote the importance of spirituality can work together for the benefit of people who are receiving mental health services. The conference will open with an exploration of the nature of spirituality and recovery and how they work together in practice. The second day will focus particularly on the importance of narrative and we will hear a number of stories from TEWV service users. The final day will have a particular emphasis on compassion and kindness. This is the third Durham conference exploring good practice in spirituality and mental health care.
