Conference: Resilience and wellbeing in rural communities
Mind’s third Rural Minds Conference takes place on 7 & 8 September. The two-day event in County Durham will address the impact of recent policy changes on people facing mental health problems as well as showcasing good practice from rural areas.
The event will address some of the challenges facing rural communities, such as: reduced public spending on services and support for the third sector; capacity and sustainability issues; fragmentation of services, and access issues.

The event is open to staff, volunteers at local Minds and Ecominds projects, and anyone else with an interest in rural mental health service delivery.

Fees for delegates from voluntary sector organisations range from £50 to £125 depending on income. A limited number of bursaries and subsidies for travel are available for smaller organisations – please mention this when booking.

You can book your place online or please call Louise Dooks on 0844 481 6020.
