Event Details

The SRHP and HIE have jointly accepted an invitation from the ECHAlliance to establish a new Ecosystem in the Highlands & Islands.

We’re really excited by this fantastic opportunity to create a new permanent mutually beneficial partnership for the Highlands & Islands which will focus on rural mental health and active healthy ageing with the dual aim of improving the delivery of rural health and social care services, and providing economic benefits.

Online access will be available for participants who are unable to join in person on the day.

The Ecosystem will bring together a community of multi-sector stakeholders interested in developing and delivering a joint agenda around rural mental health and active healthy ageing. We’ll seek to identify and address some of the key challenges and ensure that we are ‘bid ready for opportunities as they arise.

An important benefit of working together in an ECHAlliance Ecosystem is the multiplier effect and collaborating in a large international network of ecosystems.
