SRN feature in new story resource from IRISS
20th December 2013
The Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services (IRISS) has been exploring the potential role and effectiveness of storytelling across health and social care, to support positive outcomes for individuals.
The project has resulted in the creation of Storybank, a bank of resources that includes:
- An IRISS Insight – The role of personal storytelling in practice – that assesses the evidence around storytelling in social services
- Links to a number of guides to storytelling to assist people who wish to gather or use stories. This includes SRN’s ‘Story sharing guidance’
- Links to existing single and collected stories, categorised to help people to explore those most relevant to their field. This includes over 150 stories of mental health recovery that have been submitted to SRN.
Storybank is intended as a living resource. For further information or to add guides or stories contact IRISS.
The Scottish Recovery Network regularly supports individuals to develop and share their experiences of mental health and recovery. If you would like to share your thoughts or your own personal story please contact us to discuss the process and how we might support you.
