After a car crash threw her into life as a disabled woman during her Junior Doctor training, Dr Georgina Budd had to navigate an entirely new life with a new 'elephant' in the room. As a full-time wheelchair user Georgie will share her experiences of the challenges of disability and mental health struggles, how to come to terms with traumatic life changes. This discussion will explore how any future society not only should have accessibility at its core, but can benefit from it.
The event is suitable for those aged 18 and above, as there will be some discussion of challenging life events and mental health struggles. Audience participation will take the form of visualisation exercises and discussion.
