Abstract: Mr. Cohen will speak to the history of the Consumer/Survivor/Ex-Patient movement as well as more current developments. He will also discuss how the movement has partnered with families in moving away from a medicalised system of care to a community system of care. He will give examples of innovations developed by consumers/survivors, including the introduction of the ReAwaken model in Australia in 2019 and the consumer/survivor response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
