How have your experiences in lockdown- and in life- shaped what you think about how communities and health and care systems can work together in Scotland?
Our friends at Outside the Box are running a series of online events to learn more about what works well and what can be done better.
Communities’ response when we went into lockdown in March in supporting people’s health, wellbeing and social care needs was incredible, with local people coordinating different responses quickly and effectively. Once again, we find ourselves in lockdown, and it now feels more important than ever to understand how we can help community organisations and health and care systems to work in partnership and support our communities.
We know that many people with lived experience of mental health problems have a lot to say on these issues. Outside the Box want to to hear your perspectives on the experience around:
· How community-based organisations or initiatives are working in ways that support the health and wellbeing of local communities
· What conditions help and hinder you to work in partnership between communities and HSCPs
· What you think needs to happen next to nurture trust-based partnerships in your city and across Scotland
They are holding five virtual events in January hosted by Healthcare Improvement Scotland, Outside the Box and People Powered Results at Nesta (an innovation foundation). Just pick the event that you can make.
