Hertfordshire conference to demystify recovery from mental illness

12.09.2007
A conference which will help to shape the future of mental health in the UK will be held at the University of Hertfordshire next week.

The University’s Centre for Mental Health Recovery which is the first centre of its kind in a higher education institution, has joined forces with the Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a conference entitled From Here to Recovery – Transforming the Journey which will be held at the University’s Fielder Centre on 18 and 19 September.

The Trust is the first in Hertfordshire to achieve foundation status which means that local people will have more say in the future development of mental health and specialist learning disability services in the county.

Over the two days, the conference will explore the full meaning of recovery, hear experiences from mental health service users and carers and explore how further change can be introduced so that services which are fit for purpose in the 21st century can be created.

“We have begun to develop and promote recovery values and principles and deliver training and education programmes about these,” said Graham Munn, Head of the Centre.

“In addition to local collaboration, we have established national and global partnerships which confirm that this is the right time to translate the theory into a service which reflects the ethos and principles of a recovery-based approach,” added Manjit Rostom, Associate Head of the University’s School of Social, Community and Health Studies.

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
