Meeting for Minds ‘SYNERGIES’ Project
In an effort to drive organised cross-community ‘synergies’ collaborative encounters, Meetings for Minds is working closely with brain research institutes and people with lived experience of mental illness, weather sufferers, family members or carers (PLEX) in order to embed appropriately qualified members of the lived experience community as facilitators of a non-disruptive and stimulating relationship between researchers and the lived experience community at large.
These interactions with the researchers will contribute to a deeper mutual understanding and help foster a constructive and beneficial relationship between science and the broader PLEX community. The encounters will be filmed and the resulting mini-documentaries will be edited to form a continuous series of video “fly on the wall” progress reports, which can be found on the ‘Synergies Series’ Films tab at the bottom of this page.
At the core of SYNERGIES is a dynamic interchange of ideas, views and perspectives between scientists from leading neuroscience research institutes and the broad-based Mental Health Community through the active involvement of enthusiastic PLEX Research Partners interested in interpreting the benefits of research to the wider community.
Meeting for Minds is excited to hold our upcoming Meeting for Minds Switzerland SYNERGIES Launch Event, on 8 February 2018 in Lausanne, Switzerland. Read more
