Participation by people who use Mental Health services in Angus
Sometimes it is good to work in partnerships with other people or organisations. But it can be hard to find a fair balance between the people and organisations involved. We have worked with groups where it helped to have someone fresh and independent to help move the partnership along.
• We can work with one group, to help you work out what you need to protect your values and what you want to achieve as you talk to another group about a partnership. This might be because the other group is bigger or more experienced at this sort of thing than you are.
• We can work with several groups as they come together.
• We can work with a big organisation – such as a local authority, part of the NHS or a larger voluntary organisation – when you are beginning to work in partnership with a group of people who use your services or with smaller community groups.
