About this event

Association of Mental Health Providers is delighted to bring together 6 organisations from across the globe to discuss their provision of community based mental health services. The webinar will provide an opportunity for attendees to hear about the range of delivery models in different countries.

All of the speakers represent organisations featured in the 2021 World Health Organisation good practice guidance document, published on 10 June:

“The WHO guidance and technical packages showcase good practice mental health services from countries around the world that promote person-centred care that respects people’s human rights. They describe services that do not use coercion, that respect people’s legal capacity and informed consent, and that promote participation and community inclusion. Recommendations and action steps are also presented to guide and inspire policy makers, health care planners, service providers and others to develop and invest in human rights oriented services that are responsive to people’s needs and effectively support them in their recovery journey.” - World Health Organisation

We have selected a number of speakers to demonstrate a variety of innovative services that exist and the impact that they have. The event will be of interest to stakeholders who wish to develop or transform community based mental health services.

You will hear from representatives of the World Health Organisation and 6 mental health and wellbeing service providers from 6 countries, including the UK, that have featured in this report.

We will have speakers from:

The World Health Organisation

KeyRing Living Support Networks, UK

Afiya House, USA

Soteria, Berne Switzerland

Tupu Ake, New Zealand

Nairobi Mind Empowerment Support Group, Kenya

Home Again, India.

This event will be recorded.

Organiser of Community-based Mental Health Services: Promoting Rights&Recovery Globally

Association of Mental Health Providers is the leading representative body for voluntary and community sector mental health organisations in England and Wales. A registered charity, we represent our membership of small, medium and large providers – from locally focused to regional and national organisations with the purpose of providing a professional platform on which the vital work of all our members can be seen and heard. We recognise that everyone can be affected by mental ill-health and we believe it is essential that the mental health voluntary and community sector works together for a whole-system approach to improve health and care in the UK.
