Canopi Cymru first annual symposium

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first annual symposium on 11 December 2020.

We were pleased to bring together the team involved in running the HHP Wales service with a wider audience interested and involved in mental health support across Wales and the UK.

As well as briefly reviewing the services on offer via HHP Wales (now known as Canopi), we heard from NHS colleagues who have received support through us.

We cannot thank Sarah and Natalie enough for taking the time to share their experiences, what led them to the service and how they found the support they received.

Professor Neil Greenberg gave a fascinating talk around the concepts of moral injury and Dr Julie Highfield led us on a reflection of practical strategies to manage grief and loss.

As our first symposium took place online due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic we have been able to make a recording available.
