The Psychosis 2.0 conference is conceived as a follow-up to the ground-breaking 2011 Leadership Project/INTAR conference which deconstructed the traditional bio-medical notion of psychosis, and offered a deeper, more hopeful analysis of the experience that is based in recovery, resilience, human diversity, acceptance and loving kindness. With Psychosis 2.0 the focus will be similarly broad and deep, as we explore trauma, adversity and alienation at the root of psychosis, and in turn, address the relationship and community as the basis for recovery transformation.
The Leadership Project:
The Leadership Project started in 1999 with the initial idea of promoting leadership within the consumer/survivor and family communities. Our main goals quickly evolved into promoting a ‘Recovery’ vision for the Ontario mental health system, creating a space for critical dialogue between survivors, families and providers, and supporting the implementation of recovery values and best practices. To that end, the Leadership Project organizes recovery conferences, forums and workshops that are facilitated in partnership with psychiatric survivors, families and service providers.
