We were delighted to be asked to be part of the ALLIANCE Live series. This 30 minute podcast, using audio from the webinar, explores how the Making Recovery Real approach offers a different way of working together. It does not replace the traditional NHS treatment route but invites formal services to walk alongside local people, organisations and initiatives to design and deliver sustainable mental health support.
With contributions from various people involved in the successful Making Recovery Real in Dundee partnership, Scottish Recovery Network’s Acting Director, Louise Christie chairs the podcast and Q&A.
