Description:

The process of deinstitutionalisation in Latvia has already been implemented since 2015 and includes not only the introduction and improvement of social care and support structures, but also informing and educating society and providing an exchange of opinions. The increase in mental health problems is a worldwide trend, and the analysis of practices and examples from other countries not only promotes awareness but also serves as encouragement and inspiration. Easy access to support, hearing people out, acceptance and encouragement – what does society gain from such an approach? The purpose of this conversation is to explain these issues through the experience of other countries and to raise awareness of the situation in Latvia.
