Mental Health Recovery in Action National awareness-raising event 5th November 2015, Ashling hotel, Dublin, Ireland Programme Background Recovery has emerged as a central focus of mental health service policy in Ireland and internationally. As a core human experience, this concept challenges us to undergo a journey of the heart, to reimagine the power relationship between service users and providers and our ideas on what supports people to lead self-directed and flourishing lives in their communities. This exciting conference will explore ways in which the values underpinning mental health recovery have been translated into personally empowering, partnership-based services in Ireland and the wider European community. The event has been designed to maximise delegate participation and will involve an interactive panel discussion with Irish and international experts, breakout sessions on good practice and keynote presentations from renowned speakers.

My full time job for thirty years has been as a service user but my life changed about 10 years ago when I was introduced to the concept of Peer Support and WRAP. Through learning about WRAP as a self-management tool I saw the possibility to take back responsibility of my own life; I started to speak up for myself and others. I am now selfemployed and work full-time with WRAP as an Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator and as one of the international mentors for the Copeland center, I have the privilege of working and learning with many diverse groups of people. I believe passionately that everyone has a right to be well but with rights come responsibility. Wellness is not an accident, it takes action.
