Two award-winning writers challenged myths and misconceptions around patient care and mental health and offer fresh insights into what it means to be human, in a talk chaired by Christina Patterson. Filer is a qualified mental health nurse whose debut novel, 'The Shock of the Fall', about the loss of a young man grieving the death of his brother, won numerous awards including being named The Costa Book of the Year. In Nathan Filer’s first nonfiction book, 'The Heartland', he invites us to reconsider one of the most misunderstood conditions: schizophrenia. Drawing on twenty years of experience as a nurse, Watson’s bestselling book 'The Language of Kindness' ranges from birth to death and from A&E to the mortuary, chronicling a profession defined by acts of care, compassion and kindness.
