Glenda Pedwell, Deputy Director, CYMHS / August 25/ 2022
Alfred Health’s Child Youth and Mental Health Services (CYMHS) and the headspace Early Psychosis Program’s journey with Open Dialogue (OD) began in 2017, with most staff having completed training in OD since. We are now working in collaboration with Open Dialogue Centre to actively explore opportunities for widespread adoption across our services.
Our engagement with the Open Dialogue Centre has kept us on track with our ambitions for OD implementation. They have supported us in developing a roadmap for the future and are supporting us in co-designing and operationalising a plan to continue the implementation of dialogical practices.
