Notions of ‘recovery’ and ‘recovery models’ are prominent in Euro-American mental health practice and policy and are now entering global mental health debates (Aldersey et al., 2017). Concerns have been raised about the cross-cultural transferability of ‘recovery models’ to the global south (Bayetti et al., 2016). Scotland has extensive experience in ‘transferring’ ‘recovery approaches’ from the United States – with ‘co-production’, being a key modality.
This seminar features two presentations on co-production and recovery. The first showcases the on-going work of an ESRC-Impact Accelerator Award that is co-producing a visual recovery tool with service users and carers in northern India. The second discusses community approaches to recovery and co-production in Scotland. Presentations will be followed by a discussion led by Neil Quinn, Reader in Social Work and Social Policy, University of Strathclyde.
