Our ‘Emerge’ theme continues with this Build Back Better animation from the Scottish Recovery network. Mind Waves is delighted to have collaborated with SRN on this project.
Developed from conversations at their online cafes, the Build Back Better animation and accompanying report highlight the need for lived experience, peer support and communities to be at the heart of creating and delivering mental health support.
These resources tap into the knowledge, skills and lived experience of people across Scotland; particularly those living with mental health challenges.
Participants felt strongly that lived experience and peer support needs to move into the mainstream of our mental health and wellbeing support systems. A ‘mental health recovery mindset’ has been key to how they have coped with the Covid-19 situation – sharing their own skills and experiences to empower others and focusing on their abilities.
