Patch Self-help's curator insight, August 24, 2013 7:09 PM

In Finland there is also a development in mental health practice known as Open Dialogue. Look it up. In Nottingham there is a group of people trying to bring Open Dialogue to the UK starting locally. What is it? It is a way of treating people in distress with real care and understanding rather than sedating them with drugs and labeling them Psychotic for life with on going prescriptions. The best way to avoid side affects. It is a real education so do look up more about this and look out for MHAW in Nottingham where you can find an event focuswd on Open Dialogue in the orange leaflet out soon in Libraries and GP surgeries.

15-åriga finska elever har fått fortfarande bästa resultat i internationella PISA-studier. Därför talar man om den "mytiska finska undervisningen". Jag tror att bakom den där framgången är viljan att lära sig. De förflutna tider har inte varit lätta för Finland. Kampen mot fattigdom, kampen för nationell existens, kampen för ett eget språk. Är det möjligt att just den hårda kampen har påverkat finnarna så att uppskattningen av kultur, bildning och lärning har utvecklat särskilt kraftigt bland medborgare? Jag bara frågar.
