This 5th HORATIO Festival of Psychiatric Nursing is about
Participatory Mental Health
Participation means the active involvement and empowerment of stakeholders. Participation gives nurses the opportunity to collaborate with the service-users and through their work learn to do things better. Participatory mental health, is what makes it possible for nurses to work effectively as equal partners within a multi-disciplinary team and together with patients.
(The painting HÅBET, painted by Nikolaj Brie Petersen, is owned by Psychiatric Center Amager and is a pivotal point in their project Råkunst)
The festival will focus on the partnerships, both existing and intended, with service users and carers. We hope equal, open and transparent partnerships will create new strategies and opportunities within mental health care.
