In the last years, diverse perspectives such as education have incorporated to this concept. In fact, the Mental Health Action Plan (MHAP) 2013 – 2020 mentions the importance of providing “a comprehensive, integrated and responsive mental health and social care services in community-based settings” and the need of basing the strategies and interventions on scientific evidence and/or best practice. During the last four years, Agora has applied a Successful Educational Action, Dialogic Literary Gatherings, to a new context: mental health services users, with the aim of supporting the rehabilitation process as well as the social inclusion of all the participants.
