We are the group planning and organising this year’s Recovery Conference – we are HPFT staff, third sector partners, service users and carer reps.
We would really value your feedback on possible themes and focus for this year’s conference. All these topics would be developed with service users, carers and staff in mind.
Please select your first three preferences below in order of preference (i.e. 1 in the box for your first preference, 2 for your second preference, etc.) Please feel welcome to add in any suggested topics or themes that you wish.
Theme 1- Recovery oriented care planning (focus on how we work together to ensure a plan of care which both the staff member and the person who uses the services develop and agree together, as well as ensure we develop the principles of ‘Think Local, Act Personal’ focus on improving personalisation within services).
Theme 2 – Recovery Oriented Practice for People who are under the Mental Health Act (how we work to ensure that our practice is recovery oriented for those who are detained).
Theme 3 – Prevention within Mental Health Services (how we ensure that we work to build in prevention and wellbeing in all aspects of the work we do within our services, including implementing the principles of ‘Think Local, Act Personal and ensure we make this real for people).
Theme 4 – Therapeutic approaches within Recovery (e.g. using solution focused questions, using motivational interviewing, using problem solving, arts and creative therapies)
Theme 5 – Transitions and journeys across services – how we best work with people on their Recovery journey as they move from our services onwards or across different services in Hertfordshire – connections and links, transitions).
Theme 6 – Communications with people who use our services and carers – how we make our communication at all levels (e.g. written, conversations) recovery oriented and collaborative.
Theme 7 – Recovery College – What a Recovery College brings, how this might work, examples of great practice elsewhere, how we might want this to work for us (a Recovery College uses an educational and teaching model rather than a therapeutic model, and provides courses and workshops that people can choose to attend (please see attached IMROC briefing paper for more information)
Please send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 29th May. We will then use this feedback to agree the primary themes for the conference.
