What Empowers | Steve Morgan
A highly visual and story-based exploration of how we might re-imagine approaches to mental health. Using my own lived experience, we tour how services currently operate and consider the possibilities of a more relationship-focused paradigm. Investigating connection, we uncover how the natural world relies on collaboration to create health and consider lessons to be learned from that. We look at the power of community and mutually supportive relationships, surveying innovative programs that implement both. An inspiring, provocative, big picture talk, What Empowers? invites the audience to call forth passion in the work they do.
