Project description
The Association completed the "Against Social Exclusion of People with Mental Diseases" thematic project having established co-operation with ALF, a Norwegian social workers co-operative running occupational courses for persons with mental diseases. Two study visits were organised (one to Norway and Poland each, respectively) with a view to exchange experiences. Association representatives were shown i.a. the "New Friend" training programme held to the purpose of occupational activation of persons with mental diseases or addicted to psychoactive substances. Visits to place of employment managed by the ALF co-operative were organised as well. The Norwegian delegation learned about the idea and system of community psychiatry in Cracow, and visited local community psychiatry institutions. Study visits yielded a chapter in the final publication describing Norwegian work methods.
