EDIC 2018 testimonials

“I think this is one of the best conferences I have attended – great range of topics and workshops and always great to meet new people and catch up with old colleagues.” 
“Thank you for such an informative event. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and have come away with so much knowledge that I can not only apply to my own recovery, but also within my role as a professional.”
“I think it's long overdue to have more contributions from people with lived experience at major conferences and so I found the Beat Ambassador's input really excellent.”
“It was even better than anticipated and I found it to be informative and inspiring!
