During late October Danilo Dondici (one of our Change Minds volunteers) presented an academic paper on Change Minds at a conference at San Servolo Mental Health Research Centre, Venice.
Danilo reported that the conference went very well and the response was overwhelmingly positive. In particular, Pompeo Martelli, Senior Psychiatrist and Director of the Museum of the Mind in Rome, told him that he is very keen to build a partnership and develop a project along the lines of Change Minds.
The audience was mostly composed of mental health professionals, including psychiatrists and nurses, psychiatric patients, and archivists. There was overwhelming support for the principles of Change Minds.
