HERO 3rd Newsletter



HERO, the three-year project on Housing for people with experience in severe mental illness, is halfway through.


The piloting phase is near, the Partnership is wrapping up the training materials necessary to improve the skills of local communities in housing processes. Before their final release on the online platform, they will be tested with citizens, users and their families, mental health workers, operators of other organizations.


We’d like to show you some of HERO’s milestones. The diagram you see below summarizes HERO’s main activities (some of them already closed, other in progress or to be implemented soon) and their logical progression and planning. They will help you to understand the working methodology used in HERO, with a wide implication of people from the target groups; a methodology that is contributing to making HERO innovative and strongly oriented to implement quality in housing projects.
