Bereaved by Addiction Conference 2017
We have been running our annual Bereaved by Addiction Conference since 2009. It is a unique event that allows those that have been bereaved to come together and share their experiences with others who understand what they are going through. This safe environment allows people to open up without the fear of being judged or experiencing the stigma that is so prevalent with this type of death in society as a whole.
This year the conference takes place on Saturday 14th October and is titled ‘Bringing our bereavement out of the shadows – positive change for the stigma of addiction’. We are delighted to be welcoming keynote speakers; Dr John Kelly who’s presentation is title “Pathways to Recovery and Changing the ‘Language’ of Addiction” and Peter Cartwright who will be discussing “Does Support Help?”.
