Or not... everyone has gone to their workshops!! #changestigma #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek #MHAW

11:30am - 12:10pm Recovery Academy Workshops - Elements of the Recovery Academy Experience
Facilitated by Greater Manchester Mental Health Foundation Trust (Delegates are invited to choose one workshop to attend)

Workshop 1: Co-Production of a Prospectus of Relevance and Personal Meaning for the Future

Charlotte Byrne - Collaborative risk CQUIN start of 'collaboration'
                             Relationships changed from boundaries to 'getting to know me'

Charlotte Byrne - ....
                             Induction to secure services
                             Running dialogue
                             Simply experienced SUs talking to new people about the journey

Charlotte Byrne - EXEs 'get the message through'
                             not sures = reassured
                             advice = making the best of opportunities
                             help at 'stuck' point

illustrates importance of staff attitude
focuses on important of a purposeful life beyond services and through employment opportunities
learnt that having Service Users in sessions can help with hope for their peers that find it challenging to have hope for the future
a number of people in the workshop also found the content 'powerful'

Workshop 2: Peer Mentorship Programmes - Building Capacity for Service User Involvement in Recovery Academy Activities

Shawn from Cygnet Wyke - Really good - liked it. Found it 'positive'
Adam from Leeds - liked it. Espectially likes lists of guidance which gave something to work towards
Olivia from Woking - it gave the opportunity to see something she never had before and it gave her something interesting to think about
Camiella from Bradford Cygnet - found the workshop really structural. And thought that it motivated people to think within and go deeper to find their positives and strengths that they didn't know they had!
Shaun from Humber NHS - found the workshop really reflective as it allowed you to look at positives and look into yourself and thought it a really healthy piece work
Gemma from Taunton - loved it! She thought it was admirable to give back and said her team would be adding part of the work to their service's discharge package

Workshop 3: Volunteering - Balancing Challenges and Opportunities

"It's great to hear about Service Users volunteering"
"It's good to hear about what Service Users can engage in after discharge"
"With staff organising placements for Service Users, it's helpful to have that link to the community"
"It was so sad to learn that sometimes organisations will hold such a stigma that they won't accept or work with, people with a mental health or forensic history"

12:30pm - 13:10pm Advocacy; it's role in addressing stigma
John-Paul Kozah, Business Development Manager and IMHA and Lindsey Martin, Operations Director, Advent Advocacy

                             High profile people speaking out against stigma
                             Influential research

Julie Kerry - Hearing how important language is #changestigma @JPKozah speaking out @cygnethealth

Many shocked faces when @JPKozah pointed out this (mostly) unseen news clip from the #UnitedAirlines saga #changestigma #MHAW

Charlotte Byrne - Careful of language use
                             'Victorian asylumees' occasionally pop up & block good work done
                             Media & celebs have responsibility

Charlotte Byrne - Stigma - 'physical mark' of outcasts in 1660's
                                            Advent Advocacy talking stigmatising experiences
                                            Body language
