The NHS Peer-Supported Open Dialogue Conference is happening this month in London.
We know the benefits of peer support from personal experience and through our work and that a more holistic and collaborative approach better supports recovery.
Open Dialogue was developed in Finland over 20 years ago and has since been taken up by a number of other countries including some states in America – it has also been very popular in Australia.. It is a simple and effective model that encourages the involvement of family and friends and respects the individuals choices.
The results that Finland have achieved over the past 20 years as well as internationally in comparison to “Treatment as usual” (usually medication and hospitalisation) are amazing.
