“We would appreciate any assistance you can give us in sending this survey out to as many individuals, family members and others who have experienced some type of mental health care. We are interested in learning what services help, what more is needed and if families would be interested in dialogic approaches.”
Open Dialogue is an approach pioneered in Finland that replaces top-down relations between practitioners and people affected by mental health challenges and their families with opportunities for all to be heard as equal experts. The Open Dialogue approach brings together clinicians/therapists/peer specialists and individuals with their families and members of their social network in ways that ensure that all of those present have a voice. Open questions replace one way treatment so that everyones’ voice helps to guide support, care and treatment.
All survey results will be anonymous. If people volunteer to add their emails at the end of the survey we will add you to our mailing GFDA list.
The deadline for the survey is May 27th, 2021 in order to have time to summarize the results before the conference.
