[Webinar] Policy into Practice: Rethink Mental Illness’s model for coproduction

Learn more about our Coproduction Model to bring good practice into Integrated Care Systems.We know that many Integrated Care Systems are committed to coproduction, but face challenges when putting it into practice. Our guide presents a model for putting people and communities that care at the heart of decision-making in an evidenced, systematic way. In the webinar and guide, we discuss themes such as:

•    How to ensure we are hearing from a wide range of people with lived experience.
•    How to ensure that collective lived experience insight data is systematically organised to steer change.
•    How coproduction can help us tackle inequalities in access, experience, and outcomes.

The webinar, taking place on 25th January 2024 at 1pm, provides an introduction to the model by a panel of expert speakers. Full agenda to come soon.
