The 3rd edition of Joint Experiences and Mental Health Systems project

Associations, Services and Local Governments

the Joint Experiences and Mental Health Systems project (JE&LMHS) is based on the assumption that mental health it is not only a matter of special services, but has also to do with the whole local community.

The (JE&LMHS) project, currently at its 3rd edition, started in Prato (Italy)at the beginning of 2000 through collaboration among different subjects both at Italian and European level.  In the 1st and 2nd editions of the project (2001/2005 e 2009/2012) the following three main elements and their reciprocal interactions have been particularly studied both at theoretical and practical level: the Joint Experience, the Intermediate Area and the Local Mental Health Systems.

The current edition of the project intends to develop in Tuscany what it has been achieved in the previous editions. A steering group  composed by the Tuscany Agency for Health (ARS), AISMe, the Tuscany network of Mental Health associations and the Tuscany network of mental health users have jointly developed a simple mechanism in order to have an up to date  map of the projects in Tuscany driven by associations in collaboration at peer level with services and local governments (joint experiences)

In a second phase models of relationships among associations services and local governments in relation to Joint Experiences will be studied in the perspective of development of local mental health systems more and more responding to the needs and wishes of people in their own local context

Last year  the above mentioned associations together with ARS  produced two questionnaires. One refers to the Joint experiences and the other to the user and carer associations. We encourage the user and carer association to answer to the questionnaires.

Services and local governments are requested to support this work by helping to disseminate this project and by indicating interesting experiences and subjects to involve.
