This week saw the beginning of the EOLAS project. Two very interesting ladies R and J facilitated it. J herself was a service user so was on the same wavelength as us.
The course will run for 8 weeks and the next week there will be a psychiatrist to listen to all our issues and inform us and answer questions we may have. The course will run on the Monday for the next 8 weeks.
Everyone who took part really opened up and we all gave our honest opinions, which R and J took on board and respected. We were heard.
The greatest thing about the EOLAS project is it includes service users as well as families of service users and a lot of people who know what there talking about. It provides a platform for all to share their experiences without judgement, It gives everyone a voice.
