Join us for a Lived Experience talk by author Tracy Barker
“It was such a pleasure to read this book. It is beautifully written, both the prose and the poetry. This is a first-person account, from someone diagnosed with personality disorder, which offers understanding and hope and which will speak to many people.” Dr Heather Castillo
Tracy will be coming to Hertfordshire to talk to service users (with any diagnosis), carers, staff and health care students about her struggle with being labelled, and how she manages her mental health, which includes writing poetry on:
30th November 1pm- 3pm in the Fairview Suite, REAR of the Ibis Hotel, Danestrete, Stevenage, Hertfordshire, SG1 1EJ. (Disabled access is through the front main entrance.)
Lunch at 1pm. Talk at 1.30pm. Please be there for 1pm.
Tracy will be telling her lived experience journey and reading out some of her poetry. Afterwards, she will take questions from the audience. Her book is available to buy on the day. After the talk, Viewpoint will be asking those present with a diagnosis of Personality Disorder to fill out their short questionnaire (if they have not already done so.)
Places are free but limited. Please call to book a place on 01707 386136 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Reasonable service user travel and parking expenses provided.
