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”


Dr Roberto Mezzina, the Director of Mental Health in Trieste, will return to York. and he will talk in more detail about how they made the changes that led to the international recognition that they have since enjoyed. An important part was their use of personal health budgets to develop community pathways. He is very keen to support us further and one suggestion is that we might enter a twinning collaboration with Trieste, to support mutual learning.

With key leaders attending, there will be a focus on working together, at all levels, so the opportunity is there for a real injection of momentum. This aligns well with both organisational and national strategies, including the drive towards integration and accountable care.

The symposium will bring service users, carers and the community together, to lead the thinking and to help in moving things forward. If you would like a say in defining where we want to be in 20 years time, and how we will get there, please register for the symposium. It is free to participate, although tickets are limited to the size of the venue. Food and refreshements will be provided.
