‘Med 3’ rock and blues band to Trieste

  • Rod Bale (a1)
Extract

On a recent visit to the UK, Dr Guiseppe Dell Acqua, a leading exponent of the Italian psychiatric reforms, heard the ‘Med 3’ band play and extended an invitation to visit Trieste and give a concert. ‘Med 3’, the name being an allusion to the medical certificate, were formed in 1992. A Mental Health Week was held in the City of Portsmouth that year. In association with the Arts Connection, a local organisation promoting the arts to a wide audience, and the Portsmouth Care Consortium who were organising the event, artists in many fields ran workshops for mental health service users. Guy and Emma Heape, session musicians, ran a workshop at the Social Service Mental Health Day Centre and it was so successful it led to a band being formed. The band achieved recognition by winning a Mental Health Task Force award in 1993. An invitation to accompany the band to Trieste was readily accepted.
