Rufus May has worked in mental health services since 1998 as a clinical psychologist. His passion for working creatively and optimistically with intense mind states and experiences is rooted in his own experiences of mental health problems when he was 18. At this time he was treated in psychiatry for a a year and labelled with schizophrenia. Rufus prefers an holistic approach to mental health that hold diagnosis lightly. He has interests in bodywork community development, hearing voices peer support, voice dialogue, and the use of creative activity. He is also interested in addressing issues of social injustice in relation to mental health services.
My co-presenter will be Bridget Davico, coordinator and facilitator of the Halifax hearing voices group.
