Research into Recovery and Wellbeing

A website about the work of the recovery research team at the Institute of Mental Health

The University of Nottingham


At each Refocus on Recovery international conference, we hold a debate on a globally topical issue. In 2019 our topic will be:

This house believes that there is no place for compulsion in a rights-oriented mental health system

Alison Faulkner and Peter Bartlett will speak for the motion, and John Copping and Vicky Stergiopoulos will speak against the motion. The debate will be chaired by Samson Tse.

We plan to live-stream the debate to allow anyone to watch. We will be using the App so anyone attending the event or watching remotely can suggest a question for the panel.
