Meeting for Minds Israeli Spring School – 2016
In April of 2016, Meeting for Minds held a Spring School in Acres, Israel. Participants of the Spring School comprised of Postgraduate Researchers, Postgraduate Psychiatric Trainees and people with lived experience of mental illness.
The purpose of the Spring School was to see how these 3 groups could collaborate in research into the brain, and disorders of the brain, to result in better treatments. Following the Spring School the participants had formed a new “community” with a goal to create better collaborative relationships between the research field of mental health and the people who suffer from mental illness.
Spring School participants have started working within this community by arranging more meetings with each other, designing an app and creating educational projects.
