Participation in the international conference “Refocus on Recovery 2023” (Nottingham).

On September 6th and 7th, Francesc Gómez Morales and Anna Ballesteros Urpí, who collaborate in the “Citizenship as Mental Health” project, attended the international conference “Refocus on Recovery 2023” in Nottingham. GR1P proposed a paradigm shift in the evaluation of mental health interventions: measuring citizenship as the main outcome and considering symptoms only as determinants, among many others.

Francesc Gómez Morales gave a half-hour presentation in a plenary session that aroused much interest and a lively debate around the concept of citizenship.

A poster was also presented on support groups and focus groups with adolescents at the Children’s and Youth Day Hospital of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona. Citizenship and Mental Health: A Mutual Support Group and Focus Group in a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology Day Hospital Context
