Event description

Description

The original symposium in April 2016 was attended by service users, carers, staff and representatives of key organisations, commissioners, providers, the voluntary sector and community groups as well as speakers from other parts of the UK and from Trieste in Italy, where they have developed a model of mental health care based on empowerment and citizenship that has received recognition from the World Health Organisation.

Since then, there has been considerable progress towards developing a shared vision for Mental Health in York & the region through strategies led by the Care Commissioning Group, Local Authorities and others. In parallel, a small group of service-users, carers, health & social care staff and members of the community, have been meeting in “action learning sets” to reflect on how to work alongside the person, understanding a person’s whole life in the context of their networks and the social determinants within the wider system.

This follow-up symposium, therefore, will further promote a joined up approach to mental health by:

  1. Launching an overarching, independently chaired, mental health network for York and the region

  2. Considering the feedback from the action learning sets

  3. Reviewing experiences and innovative approaches in other cities and regions

  4. Considering how appropriate national and regional developments such as personal health budgets, integrated personalised commissioning, and the sustainability and transformation plan can best support the mental health needs of the community

  5. Sharing our ideas, plans and strategies, and considering how best these can be integrated and implemented to move closer to a shared vision for mental health and well-being

  6. Focussing on engaging and empowering the community to support and celebrate mental health rather than stigmatising it, as it very much remains “everybody’s business”
