The Scottish Recovery Network has launched a new site to help groups, organisations and services develop and deliver recovery focused support

Launched in response to an ever-growing need for more accessible and immediate help with mental health challenges, Scottish Recovery Network has launched a new website to help groups, organisations and services develop and deliver recovery focused support.

Building on the findings from the What’s next for recovery? report, launched earlier this year, the website is full of free resources, ideas and insights to encourage people to work together to transform Scotland’s mental health system into one that embraces peer support and is powered by lived experience.

As well as sharing learning opportunities the website provides a platform to represent calls for a joined up, cross sector mental health system that provides many different ‘doors’ to support, where, when and for however long people need it. One that nurtures the NHS, third sector and all the good practice happening on the ground in communities.

Louise Christie, acting director, Scottish Recovery Network, said: “We want Scottish Recovery Network’s new website to be the go-to place for everyone who is working to make mental health recovery part of our day-to-day practice.

"For example, you might be trying to ensure that lived experience is at the heart of strategy, service design and service delivery? Or maybe you need  help engaging with communities to create peer support opportunities or are looking to develop recovery stories to inform positive change?

"We hope that our website will be a place where you can find out about all the amazing recovery work happening across the country and we hope you are inspired to make recovery real wherever you are.”

The site was developed in collaboration with Cole-AD.
