Ann Jones, Manager at the Mental Health Network (Greater Glasgow), talks to about recovery conversation cafés – what they are, how they work and what they achieve.

In 2017 we worked with the Mental Health Network to run three area focused engagement events. The events explored mental health recovery. Feedback from participants resulted in the developmemt of a programme of regular cafés at the Mental Health Network. These cafés support wellbeing as well as providing a way for members to comment on mental health services.

Scottish Recovery Network built on the learning from these events and similar collaborative projects to develop the Run your own Recovery Conversation Café toolkit. The toolkit provides an alernative to formal engagement processes. It helps people engage in meaningful discussions about what is important to them.
