IMPROVING MENTAL HEALTH PRACTICE
Richmond Fellowship Queensland is proud to be host of Rachel Perkins tour of Australia in conjunction with RFA, RFWA, RFACT and RF TAS.
Dr Rachel Perkins will lead a series of workshops in Brisbane and Toowoomba that aim to encourage the QLD mental health sector to rethink the existing mental health service model from one that reduces symptoms to one that rebuilds lives. While Rachel has a background in clinical psychology and 30 years experience working in the mental health system, she is also an expert by experience and continues to use mental health services for her own well being.
Rachel believes that services throughout the world are facing the challenge of better promoting the Recovery of those whom they serve and states, “Recovery is not something that services or professionals do, it is a personal journey of discovery”. “The challenge for services is how best to assist people in their journey by fostering hope, helping people to take back control, providing access to the opportunities they seek and help them participate as equal citizens. Developing more Recovery-focused services is not adding another ‘intervention’ to our ‘repertoire’ but requires fundamental cultural changes.”
While in Queensland, Rachel will present three engaging and informative workshops aimed at professionals in the mental health field and open to the public, private and no-for-profit sector.
