1. NWG - The Gathering 2015


    from Pilchard Productions Added 929 2 0

    Nordic Wake Girls is a forum founded by Trudi Andersen, Maria Jorlén and Elin Ferm with the aim of strengthening the female wakeboarding community and inspiring more girls to start riding. Already a growing network, NWG strives to act as a counterweight to a sports climate in which men are generally made more visible as athletes - both on and off the water - and where the space left for female wakeboarders often is highly competitive. NWG's goal is therefore to create an environment where focus lies on learning with and from each other - not necessarily having to compete against one another. The Gathering was their first official event, which brought together 30 riders from Sweden, Norway and Denmark for a weekend at Norsjø Kabelpark in June 2015. Check out their Facebook and Instagram pages @NordicWakeGirls for news, pictures and upcoming events.

    • To The Core - Presented by The Marines - Joseph Geeter


      from Vox Creative Added 30 0 0

      The life of Joseph Geeter is nothing short of inspirational. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Geeter's life took an unexpected turn when his best friend joined the Marine Corps and showed up on his doorstep in uniform. From then on, his mind was made up. The core values of the Marine Corps — honor, courage, and commitment — guided Geeter through his 25 years of service and continue to shape his life today. After serving around the world with tours in Japan, Korea, Thailand, and the Philippines, Geeter is leading the charge in preserving the legacy of Montford Point, where the first African Americans received recruit training for the United States Marines Corps. For Geeter and countless Marines just like him, the convictions he accrued during his service have benefitted him and his community long after active duty. "The core values of honor, courage, and commitment really resonate with me today," Geeter said. "They're not just Marine-core values, I think they're life-core values." This feature was produced in collaboration between Vox Creative and Marines. For more on this campaign please visit: http://www.sbnation.com/sponsored/8573967/marines-video?ref=brandtale.com

          • Rights for Life: capacity and participation (panel discussion)


            from Scottish Recovery Network Added 35 0 0

            Rights for Life is a landmark national event on human rights and mental health recovery, organised by the Scottish Recovery Network (SRN), See Me and Voices Of eXperience (VOX). One of the panel discussions at the conference was on capacity and participation. Panellists include Colin McKay (Chief Executive, Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland), Dr. Heather Stuart (Professor of Community Health and Epidemiology, Queen’s University Canada and Bell Mental Health and Anti-Stigma Research Chair), Joyce Mouriki MBE (Chairperson, Voices Of eXperience), Ron Coleman (Founder, Working to Recovery) and Shaben Begum MBE (Director, Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance). Participation in decisions that affect us is a cornerstone of rights based and recovery oriented approaches to mental health and wellbeing. Capacity assessments – and therefore decisions as to levels of inclusion in decision-making – are a contentious area in mental health law and practice, particularly with regard to compulsory treatment and hospitalisation. Chaired by well-known health journalist, Pennie Taylor, this plenary panel discussion will address issues relating to capacity and participation in decision-making, such as the rights to liberty, privacy and equal recognition before the law, as well as choice, control, safety and risk.

                • Rights for Life: 'Doing things differently' showcase


                  from Scottish Recovery Network Added 28 0 0

                  Rights for Life is a landmark national event on human rights and mental health recovery, organised by the Scottish Recovery Network (SRN), See Me and Voices Of eXperience (VOX). One of the showcase sessions at the conference was about 'doing things differently': exploring how two organisations are using different methods to improve the lives of people with mental health conditions. Showcasers include Gill Terry from Skye and Lochalsh CAB, who spoke about their 'Advise-Ability' project that works to counter the isolation felt by many people living in rural and remote areas by offering home visits to people with mental health conditions, to give them advice and help on welfare rights, money, debt, employment, housing and community services. The second Showcase was from Donna Barrowman and Jane Dick of the Hope Café, a peer led project in Lanarkshire that challenges stigma and helps individuals in their recovery by offering activities that are proven to support positive mental health and wellbeing and offer valuable peer support to each other. The session is chaired by Lisa Cohen of See Me.
