Scottish Recovery Network are looking for people passionate about the value of lived experience engagement to join them at a series of three themed conversation cafés.
People have told us valuing meaningful engagement means building valued relationships leading to valuable dialogue. Moving from the more formal traditional styles of engagement to a more informal relational way of working together.
Each of the conversations cafés provide an opportunity to explore and focus in on a different key theme. The themes were identified by participants at earlier meaningful engagement events. Join us over a cuppa to share and hear invaluable insights and experiences, as we move together from the ‘what is’ meaningful engagement to the ‘how to’ meaningfully engage.
Do you work or volunteer in mental health in Scotland? Maybe you manage, deliver or design frontline mental health services? Or do you have experience of requiring mental health support? Join us for one, two or all three of the events – it’s up to you! (all links take you to an eventbrite booking page for that particular event).
- Meaningful Experience, Meaningful Engagement – Wednesday 4 May from 11am-12:30pm – How can we make informal and inclusive engagement valued?
- Meaningful Engagement, Meaningful Relationships – Wednesday 18 May from 11am-12:30pm- How can we recognise the power and value of lived experience?
- Meaningful Relationships, Meaningful Dialogue -Tuesday 31 May from 11am-12:30pm – How can one off conversations move to valuable dialogue?
Learning from these cafés will feed into our national Meaningful Engagement, Meaningful Relationships project and the development of new ideas will be captured in practical guides free for all to use.
