Cheryl Prax

Cheryl, a Westminster resident for 42 years, is a passionate campaigner for humane treatment of people going through extreme states. She has extensive links with service user organisations. She has spent the last nine years exploring various approaches to mental health and has attended conferences and lectures by experts in their field. She has recently trained in Open Dialogue – the successful family therapy for psychosis from Western Lapland. She is committed to challenging the dominant medical model and exploring humane and successful psycho-social models of care which take into account service user and carer perspectives with long term rehabilitation at the core. She would especially like to see CNWL adopt approaches such as Soteria and Open Dialogue along with freedom of choice of treatment and support for patients who want to gradually reduce their  use of psychiatric drugs. Her main aim is to end forced drug treatment and electroconvulsive therapy.
