A digital place for people who access services, carers, staff and partner agencies, to share ideas around care co-ordination & care planning in mental health

Update: click here to read about the CPAA event via Twitter comments;  highlights of the event were:

  • Victoria Betton and Sue Sibbald talking about the benefits of peer support via social media; supporting recovery
  • Victoria and Sue took a conversational approach to their presentation, very engaging and reflected the nature of social media – informal, unplugged, not corporate
  • How social media supports professionals connecting with each other and with people accessing services; flattening hierarchy
  • Service User led research, Toby Brandon and team presented emancipatory  research that was designed and conducted by people accessing services and carers; university modules completed to support – great to see, would like to see this approach replicated in Leeds and York

This CPA Association conference is ideal for those interested in Recovery and Wellbeing approaches in mental health. The booking form can be found here.
