A User-led Initiative in Mental Health

Home / Uncategorized / A User-led Initiative in Mental Health

An on-line Directory of local community resources, activities and mental health services is now operating in Westminster. The Directory is designed by mental health service users, with technical help from a professional. It is being kept up-to-date by a group of interested volunteers, meeting fortnightly. It has been funded by the local NHS Primary Care Trust.

It was launched in January 2008 by local MP Karen Buck, and six months later we find that it is being visited extensively by Westminster services users and staff, looking for suitable activities in the community.
This local initiative does not claim to be the first online mental health service directory, but we believe it offers a model that’s attractive and simple. Find it on http://www.go4mentalhealth.com
