Two internationally-renowned experts have addressed the Making Recovery a Reality forum organised by Eastern Health’s mental health program.
Professor of Health Services at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London, Mike Slade and Chief Medical Officer for Recovery Innovations in the United States Kenneth S. Thompson shared their ideas about recovery-based care with Eastern Health staff and colleagues from across the mental health sector.
Held in Ringwood, the forum included presentations from Eastern Health’s PARC (prevention and recovery care) service, Austin Health’s consumer group Super Hornets and Alfred Health.
