Who do we work with? The ASP is managed and core-finding through the MHI Team, working very closely with the GG&C Mental Health Improvement Network MHIN Members each belong to their own development groups in NHS (community and inpatient), Local Authority, Community, Voluntary Sector, etc
How do we decide priorities? The Partnership holds periodic engagement Events, open to the public and advertised through our networks. Stalls and presentations outline current work streams (validation) Discussion groups and focus groups discuss and decide upcoming / future priorities
How does it work? Themes are prioritised, and development groups are gathered together to look at the issues arising from that theme Group participants from NHS, Local Authority (SW & Edu, etc), Community & voluntary Groups, service users, carers and those with lived experience.
ASP Working Group Meet to agree aims (awareness rising; influencing policy / practice; training / development; etc) and focus (public facing campaigns; influencing best practice; etc) Draw together an Action Plan – which is then prioritised and budgeted Actions taken forward in partnership
