Our phisolophy for networking
In general terms, FSR works in network with a range of institutions that belong to mental health, employment, youth and social inclusion areas at regional, national and international level.
This networking reinforces the cooperation and collaboration to develop joint activities in the fields of social and labour inclusion, employment and mental health among others. It also establishes the best context for best practices exchange, continuous improvement and the execution of collaborative projects.
At national level, it is part of the ISEM Network´s committee. ISEM is the Platform of Entities for the Promotion and Social Inclusion of People with Mental Illness, a group of professional entities represented in every Spanish region that intends to be a national reference in the field of mental health.
Through ISEM, FSR is also integrated in two European networks in the field of mental health: EASPD - European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities- and MHE -Mental Health Europe-.
The FSR is also part of AESE -Supported Employment Spanish Association-, AEDIPE - People´s Management and Development Spanish Association- and ADECEM - National Association of Special Employment Centers- aimed at social initiatives focused on people with mental illness .
