Theme: Recovery and Social Inclusion
Abstract: South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) provides mental health and addictions services in four London Boroughs, serving a total population of approximately 1.25 million people.
The services that are provided in hospital and in community settings include a wide range of clinical interventions. In addition to these, there are many parallel innovative projects that aim to reach and support people using more creative approaches.
Some of the vehicles used to deliver these projects have included drama, dance, football, trapeze and surfing.
This presentation will explore some of the outcomes of these projects and try to identify key factors in their success.
