Here are the details of the first event I have been asked to Chair!
Part of the Mental Health 2010 Conference Series
Service User Involvement and Empowerment in Mental Health
Tuesday 09 February 2010
76 Portland Place, London
“It’s about people who happen to use mental health services being treated as people.” New Horizons: Towards A Shared Vision For Mental Health Consultation, DoH; July 2009
Chaired by Elaine Hanzak Expert by Experience, Speaker and Author ‘Eyes without Sparkle – a journey through postnatal illness’, the conference is a unique learning opportunity and provides an important update on how the act of involvement and engagement can empower service users and improve the quality of service delivery and care in mental health.
"Service users and their quality of life must be at the core of service design and delivery. Their views plus the views of carers, the public and staff must shape care pathway outcome measures and performance frameworks must increasingly focus on these outcome measures." New Horizons: Towards A Shared Vision For Mental Health Consultation, DoH; July 2009
You will have the opportunity to hear from a broad range of speakers including carers and service-user representatives about what Involvement and Empowerment means in practice with case study examples of effective service delivery techniques and personalisation models – a key requirement for effective user-led services.
Two interactive workshops provide the chance for you to participate in active discussions with fellow delegates, carers and healthcare professionals. Closing with looking beyond involvement: promoting human rights and involving service users to reduce social exclusion the conference will be a unique learning opportunity and provides an important update on how the act of Involvement and Engagement can empower Service Users and improve the quality of service delivery and care in mental health.
