Lived Experience Project

Achieving Physical Health Equality - Lived Experience Project

The RCN is holding a lived experience workshop Tuesday 10 September, at RCN HQ, London, to help to develop a better understanding of how achieving physical health equality works in day to day practice within mental health settings.

Citizens UK, a social movement, is supporting the RCN in the event. The intention is to bring service users and nurses together to develop a shared and deeper understanding of what makes a difference in promoting physical health for those with serious and complex mental health needs.

The workshop would be structured to enable each story to be heard and discussed. As part of the workshop, service users, carers and clinicians will have opportunity to share their unique perspectives on achieving physical health equality. The dialogue, will be captured, distilled and shared with the group and more widely. There will be opportunity to consider actions and next steps.

If you are interested in taking part, please register your interest by completing the form on the right hand side of the page or email directly to
