Turning Lived Experience into Lived Expertise

Larry-Davidson-PhDThe International Leadership Academy Fund has been established at the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care. It aims to prepare persons with lived experiences of mental ill health and recovery to take on leadership roles within their own local, regional, and national systems of care across the globe. The idea for this fund, and the program it seeks to develop, emerged from a meeting of prominent system leaders and advocates with lived experience who came together at Yale University in May of 2014. The meeting was sponsored by the International Institute for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL), directed by Foundation Chair Fran Silvestri, and was held to invite input from leaders with lived experience as to how the work of the IIMHL could benefit from the wisdom they and others had accrued through their own personal experiences of recovery and mental health system transformation efforts. The meeting was co-chaired by Larry Davidson, a professor of psychology at Yale and member of the Foundation Board, and Anthony Stratford of MIND Australia, and included lived experience leaders from Scotland, England, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, and the U.S.
