There is a need to build trusting relationships between services users, families and practitioners. This is important because knowing the person as a person, not just as someone with a mental illness is critical to improve the outcomes for service users

This webinar will hear from the experience of providing a different approach from Lyngby Services in Denmark. Understanding the importance of the whole life story of the person is the foundation of being able to provide a holistic approach. This can be achieved through relationships, co-produced between service users and staff, also involving the private and social network and community.

This webinar will provide an example of changing the power structure in the professional-service user relationship.

Letting the service user choose who to work with, is an example of this. Working with low threshold and user/network involvement from the first contact of the person with the services is an important part of this way of working.
