MH MK campaign.jpgCNWL in Milton Keynes is launching a campaign to find people who can help it improve mental health services across the area.

It’s looking for people who have experience of mental health services in Milton Keynes to take part in redesigning mental health services alongside NHS professionals and community partners.

It’s putting up digital posters in Centre:MK as well as similar material in local libraries and in other parts of the city, including sending the information to partners from the voluntary and community sector.

The Trust is in the midst of transforming all its community mental health services, which involves creating a new model of care that will give people the right care in the right place at the right time based on their needs.

At its heart is a Community Mental Health Hub, in which mental health practitioners work with service users to jointly develop recovery plans and to access help and support within the wider community. 

CNWL Milton Keynes launched its Hub in March. However, The Hub is only the start of the transformation.

Service Director Lesley Halford said: “This is only the beginning. We want to work more closely with partners, including in the community and voluntary sector, to further develop the help and support available to individuals.

“At the heart of these changes are the patients, who will receive person-centred care within the new model of care. Their voice has been key and will continue to be so as we develop our ambition around a new Mental Health Hub.

“Our overriding focus is to develop a service that offers the right care in the right place at the right time and allows service users to tell their story once and be confident it will be heard and understood and continue to be heard throughout recovery.

“This is why we continue to need your help. We want to hear from you as to how we can make sure that our service is providing you or your loved with the right. We can’t do it alone.”
