Understanding the role of the 'talking circle' in enhancing well-being

Author: Sophie Redlin

Sophie Redlin, a General Practitioner from London, travelled to the USA to investigate the impact of American Indian and Alaska Native 'talking circles' on the emotional wellbeing of both native and non-native communities. She will use her findings to challenge the current narrative around mental health management in the UK and develop an alternative and community-empowering approach to supporting those in distress.
