Community Support project
"Community Participation" started in three European countries (Hungary, Estonia & The Netherlands) in 2012. The general aim of our project was to develop new knowledge for professionals about effective components of community support programmes. The focus was to increase empowerment and self-support of persons with psychiatric and other disabilities.
The specific aims of the project were:
- To develop new knowledge about effective components of community support programmes and professional interventions
- To transfer this knowledge to professionals of social and mental health services in the three countries, and to teachers from the different universities and professional members of CARe Europe
- To transfer this knowledge into teaching materials which can be used in bachelor and master programmes at the universities in the different countries.
- To increase mobility of lecturers, trainers, students and professors across Europe.
