Wellbeing Wednesdays Episode #24

“The one about… Models of Mental Health Care & the New Paradigm”

This was a bit of a different episode of Wellbeing Wednesdays, where we looked at what’s up with the existing models of mental healthcare. We then turned our eye to the future, exploring what the new paradigm has to offer. The live version of this was much longer and the first half has been extensively edited, to give you just the highlights. So it's a succinct session of two distinct halves: the first a fast and furious gallop through the current state of play; the second slower and more contemplative.
