Footage From a Rock Show at Mental Health Hospital 2021

Share the video to raise awareness about Open Dialogue!

Saturday, June 12th 2021
A rock concert occured at a mental health hospital for a patient named Sebastian. He has been living in the hospital for the majority of his adult life.
Family/friends of Sebastian are attempting to help the mental health field grow and change in parts of Canada with research and practices based off of the “Open Dialogue” approach.

I am a recreation therapist who organized the show and is working with Sebastian and his family weekly. We need Open Dialogue in Canada and would appreciate any suggestions to begin educating and starting the process of change.

Anyone here in Canada that has suggestions/other experiences with mental health hospitals and the struggle to get Open Dialogue approach happening in the country?
