Chasing the Stigma’s Hub of Hope has featured as a example of best practise in a report launched at the House of Commons this week.
The All Age Crisis Care report, created by the Positive Practice in Mental Health Collaborative (PPiMH) in collaboration with the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health (NCCMH) highlights the very best examples of crisis care across all age groups.
The report talks of the importance of equal and inclusive access, person centred care, and getting the right help at the right time in the right way.
Jake Mills, CEO and founder of Chasing the Stigma and the Hub of Hope said “It is a real honour for us to be recognised as part of such a significant report.
So often within mental health services, people look at the easy, simple solutions to problems and think they’re too obvious, so instead overthink and over complicate the process.
Positive practice is often most effective when we go back to basics, see people as people, hear the need and act on it, no matter how obvious or basic that might sound. The Hub of Hope is proof of that. It isn’t rocket science but it is highly affective.
The Founder of the PPiMH Collaborative, Tony Russell said “From personal experience I know how important it is for those of us who suffer from severe mental health distress to be able to access appropriate, compassionate local services as soon as a crisis occurs. Speedy access to services can prevent people being ill for longer and reduce the need for lengthy inpatient care.
