Mental Health and Welfare Reform Conference 2016

Ken Loach’s powerful film  I, Daniel Blake, has quite rightly stirred up the debate about welfare cuts, sanctions and the opressive and unjust nature of government policy against the disabled and those with long-term health problems who are unemployed.  Liverpool Hope University is hosting a one day conference on Saturday Nov 5th to examine these issues at length. Speakers include the psychologist Dr. Jay Watts and Roy Bard from the Mental Health Resistance Network. I am also looking forward to speaking at it.
