New ways in self-help
What is the scope of self-help? What chances and challenges do self-help interventions pose? And how can we develop self-help in the future? These and similar questions participants of the European Empowerment Seminar “Mental Health Europe creates Empowerment” discussed on 25-26 September 2019 in Landau / Pfalz, Germany. The seminar was hosted by Pfalzklinikum, Mental Health Europe’s German member, in the University of Landau nearby the Pfalzklinikum headquarters in South Palatinate.
The seminar brought together people with lived experience of mental-ill health, representing MHE member organisations from 12 European countries, as well as peers from the support and self-help community, such as EUTB Landau (complementing independent, participation consultancy) or the Landesnetzwerk Selbsthilfe Seelische Gesundheit – NetzG RLP (regional network self-help mental health Rhineland-Palatinate) and professionals.
