Meet the Positive Practice Special Interest Groups
FIRST SHORTLISTS ANNOUNCED FOR THE NATIONAL POSITIVE PRACTICE IN MENTAL HEALTH AWARDS 2016 – Record number of nominations received this year!
Welcome to the Positive Practice MH Collaborative website. We are a user led multi agency collaborative of seventy-five organisations, including, NHS Trusts, CCG’s, Police Forces, third sector providers, front line charities and service user groups. Our reason for being is to identify, and disseminate positive practice in mental health services by working together across organisations and sectors, to facilitate shared learning, and to raise the profile of mental health with politicians and policy makers.
We share practice in a variety of ways including through our special interest groups, our events, the national MH Awards, and via our virtual networks. We will also this year launch our national guide to mental health services, with examples from the moment of engagement with services, to discharge. This guide will be particularly aimed at commissioners to make their life easier whilst commissioning mental health services.
Our steering group and board comprise of a wide variety of people in mental health, from all disciplines and backgrounds. We lobby and campaign to ensure that mental health is given a far greater priority and parity on the health agenda, by engaging with, and informing senior policy makers and politicians.
We provide free mental health awareness training and support to Members of Parliament, as well as holding roundtables with them and our members to make sure they are as well informed as possible about mental health issues.
We hope you like our site, please feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you!
