The east London branch of Soroptimist International – which meets at Woodford Memorial Hall – will host an event about women’s mental health in the community and in the criminal justice system on 21 January.
The talk will be led by Joyce Kallevik, director of WISH, the only national, user-led charity working with women with mental health needs in prisons, hospitals and the community. “Joyce is a widely recognised authority on the reality of women’s mental health provision. She’ll be sharing her extensive experience working as a mental health advocate and the unique insights she’s gained through her own experience of mental illness,” said a Soroptimist East London spokesperson.
The event, which starts at 7.15pm, is open to all (tickets: by donation; booking required).
