Help shape Scottish Government’s new Self-Harm Strategy – 28th February 2023 Recovery Conversation Cafés

Posted on

A happy Highland new year to you all! We hope you had a restful time over the seasonal break. 



One of Scottish Government's key commitments in their current Mental health strategy was to develop a new dedicated Self-Harm Strategy.


Scottish Recovery Network believes lived experience should be at the heart of the development of services and strategies. So, they are keen to engage with people working with people who have direct lived experience of self-harm and with those on the frontline, across health, emergency, youth and education, and third sector settings, to understand what needs to change.


The feedback and learning from this café will be shared with the Scottish Government to help them develop better services in the future as well as supporting the development of a new Self-Harm Network Scotland supported by Scottish Recovery Network's host organisation Penumbra. 


Interested? Join Scottish Recovery Network from 12.30pm to 2.30pm on 28 February 2022 to be part of that exciting process. Lunch is provided from 12.30pm and will be followed by a Highland Recovery Conversation Café from 1.00pm to 2.30pm at the Spectrum Centre in Inverness.  Exploring together how to make services and support better for people affected by self-harm.
