Tuesday 14th June, 12pm – 3pm, Lg45 The Alchemy Project
This lunchtime seminar explores the work of The Alchemy Project and how they help young adults recover from psychosis through dance. The Alchemy Project delivered two, pioneering, dance-led interventions, working intensively over 4 weeks with two groups of 12 young adults accessing Early Intervention in Psychosis Services through the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) and 6 peer mentors.
These concluded in a live performance that was the conclusion of the process and a moment of celebration that marked the group’s achievements. Independent evaluation of the interventions confirmed that they achieved clinically significant results in the improved mental wellbeing of the participants.
A 40 minute documentary about the project will start the seminar which will then be followed by Carly Annable-Coop (Project Director) sharing the background, journey so far, impact and evidence base of the project.
There will be an opportunity for discussion towards the end of the seminar and light refreshments will be provided. The seminar has been organised by the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing & the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. This event is free and is open to staff, students and the general public.
