Abstract: Paper from TheMHS Conference 2016 Book of Proceedings: People. Authenticity Starts in the Heart. The Conference was held in Auckland, New Zealand 23 - 26 August 2016.
This paper examines the complex task that we, as community and mental health organisations, play in supporting our communities to reach and sustain good mental wellbeing outcomes despite the many big challenges that we face. First, by looking at the extent to which we engage authentically with others on a human level, then by exploring how the leap from mental health services to community wellbeing can be achieved through innovative, expansive thinking and authentic practice. And ending with examples of how we put some of these ideas into practice here at Raeburn House.
