EUFAMI – Invitation for Project Participation – INVOLVE

Dear Members of EUFAMI,

I am delighted to inform you that EUFAMI will shortly launch a new project aimed at supporting member organisations to advocate nationally with their mental health service to improve the involvement of families in services.

The purpose of this letter is to invite you to participate, in this new project entitled Involve.

Current practice in most mental health care systems means that many relatives, friends, partners, and carers feel excluded from having or giving an informed view of their expectations and experiences in relation to the social needs and treatment of the family member they are supporting. Mental Health Services often, unconsciously and consciously, exclude family members, friends, or other care partners, from the care and treatment process and focus only on the person presenting a mental illness. International research reflects this experience and is supported by EUFAMI’s most recent research on the Value of Caring.

The Involve project has now been approved and funding has been established with our partners Boehringer Ingelheim (International) GmBH.

Please click here to view the official proposal, which provides further details of the project, for your review.

The project is limited to up to ten national organisations. Any interested organisation should send a brief email expressing interest in the project to me, Dimitra at project.admin.office@eufami.org.

The closing date for expressions of interest is 31st March 2022.

Following receipt, a Zoom meeting will be held with interested members to provide more information.

If you would like to discuss further and ask any questions before agreeing to take part, please do not hesitate to contact EUFAMI’s Executive Director, Mr John Saunders at executive.director@eufami.org or call at +353 879271292.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this information.

Sincerely

Dimitra Stefanopoulos

Administration & Communications Officer
