Thank you to everyone who attended our recovery showcase and Annual Members Meeting this year on 8 October at the Emirates Stadium.
We hope you learnt a bit more about health and wellbeing during our Recovery Showcase.
For those of you who couldn’t attend here is a little of what you missed.
We learnt that one in three people over the age of 65 will fall each year. We looked at fall prevention measures and top tips for staying steady include being active which can keep legs strong and help your balance and looking after your feet.
Staff from our Recovery College shared information about the free courses they provide.
Teams from our South Barnet Primary Care service, which operates in GPs practices where our staff provide advice for staff and patients, shared information about wellbeing. We also found that their service user satisfaction has been measured at 95%!
Other services who joined us for the showcase included iCope, dementia navigators, crisis house staff, clinical strategy team, occupational therapy, mental health law team, voluntary services manager and our advice and complaints team.
You can find out more about what they do in our services directory.
We were delighted to welcome Alison Cameron our special guest speaker to the event. Her career was cut short when she was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after her colleagues were killed in the course of her work in the Republic of Belarus. The consequences included substance misuse, homelessness, multiple admissions to hospital and identity loss. She now advises NHS, housing and social care organisations on how to work in genuine partnership with those who use services.
Following her talk, the Annual Members Meeting started at 6.30pm with our chair Leisha Fullick reciting a poem before Chief Executive Wendy Wallace outlined key achievements in the past year and David Wragg provided a summary of our finances.
