The Sharing Stories Venture were delighted to learn we were to receive an award from Health Education North West. As part of the Adult Learners’ Week Awards in Health and Social Care 2015, we received an award for ‘Learning Together in a Health and Social Care Project – Developing a Shared Culture’. The ethos of this award fits closely with the values which underpins our collaboration between the Lancaster University clinical psychology training community in the UK and people who access and work in mental health services in Uganda.
We believe that by valuing relationships, engaging in mutual learning and listening to all voices we can continue to contribute to the emotional wellbeing of individuals and communities in both Uganda and the UK. Special thanks also goes to Anna Daiches for nominating us for the award and for supporting the project from the outset.
