Citizenship, Recovery and Inclusive Society Partnership Project Conference
Venue: Scottish Youth Theatre, Glasgow
Dates: 29th and 30th August 2019
The aim of this two day conference is to celebrate the range of work carried out across the life of the CRISP programme with a focus on lessons for policy makers and practitioners in the fields of mental health. These three exciting events over two days will offer delegates the opportunity to hear about the findings from innovative pieces of work as well as the chance to shape the future agenda by identifying priorities for research, policy and practice.
Two of the key themes of the project involve central and potentially interlinked concepts: recovery and citizenship, considering their potential impact on the lived experience of people who use mental health services. Other themes include a focus on assets, strengths and relationship based practice, valued roles and valued goals and the measurement of these and the role of peer support. Day one will focus on Citizenship Informed Practice followed by an evening reception to celebrate the role of arts in the promotion of good mental health and wellbeing. Day Two will focus on the concept of Recovery and Recovery focused practice.
