7WHS0025 Innovation in Mental Health Recovery Theory and Practice (Online)

About the course

It will bring you right up to date with the mental health recovery and social inclusion issues that will be helpful in your practice or in managing your own or others' care. It will inform your approach and help you provide an evidence base for your arguments for making the changes in services that will be fundamental to best practice delivery in health and social care services of the future.

Who should attend this course?

Anyone who would like to develop their understanding of mental health recovery and social inclusion and the evidence base and research that underpins the innovative work and developments that we are seeing in practice or anyone that would like to be able to innovate and lead change in service user experience and health and social care practice. Service users, practitioners, professionals, mental health workers, carers, policy makers and service providers.

Course content

We will discuss what we mean by mental health recovery and the impact of identity, stigma and resilience. We will develop our understanding of where the recovery approach sits alongside the biopsychosocial and medical models and consider the evolution of the 'anti' recovery movement and its importance to our understanding of service user centred care. We will consider the impact of poverty and employment on mental health, recovery and social inclusion.
