My name is Helen George and I am the founder of this new and much needed initiative.
We are a not-for-profit organisation focusing specifically on trauma and healing within Black, Asian and Minoritised Communities.
The roots for Community Trauma Conference UK emerged from my previous successes with BME Voices Talk Mental Health and Trauma Conference 2019 & 2020. We have now evolved with a new vision.
Create bespoke conference platforms for mental health practitioners, researchers and other professionals to share their best practice, research and diversity of thought with the wider mental health profession and beyond.
Bring together a diverse range of voices, covering the most relevant, timely and important mental health concerns within our communities.
Give space for new and emerging research into mental health and trauma within Black, Asian and Minoritised Communities.
Provide practitioners and organisations with the insight and skills to engage more effectively with communities of colour.
Become a place where researchers, practitioners and professionals can come together to exchange ideas and network.
We will be using our profits and any funding we receive to support our communities with free and low-cost mental health events and workshops.
We have exciting plans for this conference organisation and will be sharing them with you in the coming months.
In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you, either virtually or face to face, to one of our conferences.
"Thank you so much for what you are doing in bringing BME therapist/Therapeutic beings together. This has made me think about my position as a therapist, how I practice and how I'm reaching (or not) the people in need in our communities"
Trauma Conference 2019
"I enjoyed the conference as a black therapist and individual. Our communities are in need of these platforms to keep the issue of race and the "other" high on the agenda. The conference assisted my learning and validated my experience. Thank you"
