Please join us to view a range of artwork created around the theme of mental health and ‘Open Dialogue’: a new form of crisis and continuing mental health care that has been offered in a trial in the NHS which is complete in September 2023. Over the last few years, we have recruited 494 participants who over two-years each worked with many NHS crisis and community mental health teams and six Open Dialogue teams across five NHS Trusts. More than 2000 interviews have taken place with service-users, their supporters, and NHS staff. At this art showcase we hope to show more details about this exciting programme of research before the official trial results in 2024 (more information ahead of Open Dialogue and this research is available online here ) Click Here

On the day you can expect to
• browse a range of art works at your leisure, many created by people involved in ODDESSI as participants, families, and NHS or University staff
• find out more about ODDESSI and celebrate the end of the trial
• ask ODDESSI researchers any questions you might have
• contribute to our dissemination plans: who should we be telling about this research?
• add your own art to our wall of voices
