Improving Mental Health – events and workshops

Understanding what matters most to people when they get mental health support


Our journey so far

‘Tell me your story’ discovery events

In summer 2021, we held three events to help us really understand what matters most to people when they get mental health support, and how they would like to work with us in the future.

This included:

  • Our first event on 8 July 2021 which focused on people with lived experience, and their carers.

See the feedback from the first event.

  • Our second event on 4 August 2021 which focused on voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations.

See the feedback from the second event.

  • Our third event on 26 August 2021 which included a mixture of people with lived experience, carers, partners and voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations.

Workshops

Series one

In April 2022, our team delivered the first series of design workshops. These focused on how we can improve people’s journey to getting support.

See the feedback from the first series of workshops.

Series two

Following on from the first series of workshops we met again in May 2022, to build on our previous ideas and discuss how we can improve our future ways of working.

We discussed the idea of a ‘hub’ and how this would improve people’s journey to getting support.

See the feedback from the second series of workshops.
