EOLAS: 'The road we travel…' is an exhibition that features the work of service users and family members who facilitate and participate in the delivery of the EOLAS Programme. The exhibition, through the medium of photography and in the words of the service user and family contributors, shares their stories of living with a severe mental health problem, the journey they take towards recovery and how the EOLAS process has helped them on that journey.

The exhibition is an artistic venture developed as part of a collaboration with PhotoVoice and is funded by the Health Research Board (HRB) through a Knowledge Exchange Dissemination Award to Professor Agnes Higgins, EOLAS Principal Investigator, with other support from the Health Service Executive (HSE).

We will have a special performance by the Raise Your Voice Choir, another collaboration between people with experience of mental health problems, family members and mental health staff.

The EOLAS Project

EOLAS is a co-produced, co-facilitated education programme that aims to engage service users and their families in understanding the recovery journey following the experience of psychosis (e.g. schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) (www.eolasproject.ie). EOLAS is a collaborative initiative between people with experience of mental health problems, family members, staff with the mental health services, researchers and academia.
