21st September 2015

The Mental Health Foundation invites you to a free event looking at self-directed support (SDS) in relation to mental health in Scotland.

Mental_Health_FoundationThe ‘Taking the Chance: Progressing SDS and Mental Health’ event will include:

  • Learning from a three year programme with third sector provider organisations (in partnership with the Scottish Mental Health Cooperative)
  • The launch of Peer Potential, a new Scottish Government funded project working with small peer led mental health organisations
  • An open discussion on SDS and mental health with an invited panel of contributors

Chris White, Policy and Information Officer at the Mental Health Foundation, commented:

“Mental health remains a challenging area for the implementation of self-directed support in social care in Scotland.

“There should be a strong relationship between the self-management and recovery movements in mental health, and the ability to set and be supported to achieve personal outcomes using self-directed support.”
