Engage Daily Update - 08 April
Launched in response to an ever-growing need for more accessible and immediate help for people with mental health challenges, Scottish Recovery Network has launched a new website to help groups, communities, organisations and services develop and deliver recovery focused support.
The website is full of free resources, ideas and insights to encourage people to work together to transform Scotland’s mental health system into one that embraces peer support and is powered by lived experience.
It provides a platform to represent calls for a joined up, cross sector mental health system that provides many different ‘doors’ to support, where, when and for however long people need it. One that nurtures the third sector, NHS and all the good practice happening on the ground (or online) in communities.
Take a look around and see how you can make recovery real where you are http://bit.ly/2gyRB3Q
