Scope: Health, EconomiesCategories: Economia de la Cura, Mental Health


Providing spaces, time and tools to address the non-therapeutic needs derived from the therapeutic process as well as the need for recovery is essential for people who have or have had a mental health problem as well as for their families. Often all these needs are neglected by the health system, very oriented to the clinical needs (to the treatment).


The Activa’t by Mental Health program of the Generalitat de Catalunya is aimed at covering these non-clinical needs. Spora develops together with ActivaMent materials to promote the processes of mutual support. Specifically, drawing up a model of Mutual Aid Groups as well as the training materials to promote them.
