A Mental Health Centre in the Village of Geel, Belgium
Presenter: Jim Hutchings
Mental Illness has always been with us. Patients were sometimes treated quite cruelly in attempts to effect a cure. Other times, quite kind approaches were used to try to make desired changes. Over the centuries, one small community in Belgium stood out as a model for the treatment of mental illness. We will examine the story of Geel and how it became, for some, the "Gold Standard" for the treatment of the mentally ill.

We're Here! Now What?
Presenter: Ponziano Aluma
A family crisis promoted the writing of my book: "We're Here! Now What?". My basic beliefs in God have shaped my views on the newcomer experience. Refugees about whom we know very little, and who also know very little about us, arrive on our shores. Although we have no control over the events that give rise to exodus and migration, we do have choices over what roles to play in the resettlement of newcomers once they are here. And that starts with making an effort to understand them, as well as helping them to understand us.
