Our intial event in October 2019 was a taster event where AIMH (UK) practitioners from all over the South West, dicussed the setting up of an IMH Hub in Bristol/South-West (Eastern Region) and a potential Bristol South-West (Western Region) IMH Hub
The day included Robin Balbernie’s hugely impactful presentation ‘The Influences of Early Relationships on Brain Development’ and following this practitioners had the opportunity to network with each other and consider what they may want out of an IMH Hub.
