Date: Tuesday 25th April 2023 5-7 pm CET
ENTER would like to invite you the to participate in the second of our ENTER Semester 1 Webinar series on the thematic of recovery-oriented approaches which will be held on the 25th April 2023 5-7pm CET. This year, we chose to focus on current European discussions around Child and youth mental health issues and Recovery-oriented approaches. The first webinar on Child and youth mental health issues was on the 21st February 2023. You can find the recording of here: Webinar 2023:1 Child and Adolescent MH | entermentalhealthnet.
These webinars are an opportunity to network, between members of ENTER, to update our common knowledge, to get to know each other better, and also to share the activities and principles of the ENTER Network with a wider audience.
Over the last decades recovery-oriented practices in mental health have increased and there are debates about how to conceptualize recovery. This webinar explores current issues of recovery in mental health, in terms of social, personal, clinical recovery, or alternatively new understandings of recovery emerging. Recovery is a holistic approach that considers social needs, empowerment and hope, and the webinar will welcome research from different perspectives whether it is user-led, related to severe mental illness or in the community.
We are pleased to announce our speakers for the webinar will be:
David Crepaz-Keay: Head of Empowerment and Social Inclusion at the Mental Health Foundation UK.
Karina Stjernegaard: consumer academic, PhD student at the University of Southern Denmark & The Zealand Region in Denmark, Occupational Therapist (B.OT) & Master of Arts in Psychology and Work Life Studies. Karina works within public mental health services in Denmark. She uses her experiential knowledge as a consultant working with recovery-oriented practices, peer support and destigmatization. She is also a PhD student exploring lived experiences of recovery amongst mental health professionals, who are not employed as peer support workers, and how sharing of experiences may benefit current users of mental health services. She is inspired by survivor research and mad studies. Karina represents Denmark in the Global Mental Health Peer Network.
Peter Bullimore: Peter is a voice hearer who spent ten years as a psychiatric patient enduring many bouts of severe paranoia. Through learning holistic approaches and with support of the Hearing Voices Network, he was able to reclaim his life from the system. He facilitates a hearing voices and paranoia support group in Sheffield. He also runs his own training and consultancy agency, Asylum Associates, and is the founder member of the Paranoia Network.
We hope that you can join us for what should be a very vibrant and stimulating webinar.
