Theresa Bates Speaks at Social Exclusion Conference in Brussels< back to full news listing
Frame of Mind's very own Theresa Bates was speaking at the fourth Annual Convention of the European Platform Against Poverty and Social Exclusion in Brussels today. Theresa spoke movingly to her audience from around the continent about how she had transformed her life from service user to Frame of Mind Founder and Operations Director. Theresa said "I have never done any public speaking before and I was extremely nervous on the day. However everybody was very supportive and I managed to get through it ok."
She need not have worried though as she got a warm reception and even ended up on twitter when Lieve Fransen Director Social Policies and Europe 2020 favourited the tweet.
"Inspirational speech by Theresa Bates @Frameofmindcic, creating jobs and hope for socially excluded mental health service users #poverty2020"
