The 2020 European Empowerment Seminar, Let’s Talk – Empowering Recovery in Europe, will take place online via Zoom on 24th July 2020 and will be hosted by Mental Health Ireland.

The seminar has been co-produced by people from backgrounds in lived experience of mental health challenges, family members / carers, service providers and will focus on how Empowering Recovery through co-production provides better outcomes for everyone.

The seminar will explore the key concepts of CHIME – Connection, Hope, Identity, Meaning and Empowerment through a variety of interactive and creative means.

These will include: Music, Poetry, Art, Live Interactive Panel discussions, Presentations, Workshops dedicated to Human Rights and Advocacy, Education and Recovery and the power of Peer Workers in mental health service development and delivery, and a Virtual Recovery Trail.

In honouring true co-production, this year we are inviting people with lived experience of mental health challenges, family members/ carers and service providers to register.

There is no cost for attendance.

What you will need to participate is an open, curious mind, a willingness to engage in the co-production process, a passion to contribute and access to the internet.

Registration will open on 9th June at 10:00am.
