Is diagnosis fixed or does it change over time?
What is the actual role of diagnosis?
Is it fact or opinion?
The panel discussion examines many of these questions by looking at the value, impact or meaning that diagnosis has for people.
It will also explore possible benefits and uncertainties associated with diagnoses.
Through shared experience and knowledge of diagnosis, this discussion considers how individuals, families, professions and communities might better understand diagnoses and their impact.
This is a panel discussion. The panel will be made up of a mix of mental health professionals and people who have a lived experience with mental health diagnoses. Audience members will be invited to listen to the perspectives of the panel members and to contribute to a Q & A at the end.
