Participatory Mental Health
Participation means the active involvement and empowerment of stakeholders. Participation gives nurses the opportunity to collaborate with the service-users and through their work learn to do things better. Participatory mental health, is what makes it possible for nurses to work effectively as equal partners within a multi-disciplinary team and together with patients.
The festival will focus on the partnerships, both existing and intended, with service users and carers. We hope equal, open and transparent partnerships will create new strategies and opportunities within mental health care.
