CWP paving the way for 'Positive Practice'

2 CWP services have been shortlisted for this year's 'Positive Practice Mental Health Awards.' The Wirral Primary Mental Health Team, which is run by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP), recently launched a programme for 'Future in Mind' which saw CWP CAMHS staff training those who work with or care for children with mental health issues to provide guidance and support.  The programme was nominated for the 'Primary and Secondary Mental Health Care Collaboration' category and the 'Improving Access and Outcomes in Education' category and has been shortlisted for both awards.  The awards are due to take place on the 12 October 2017, in Blackpool.

Vicky Dunham, team manager for Wirral CAMHS Primary Mental Health Team, said:- "The work we're doing for Future in Mind is something I'm extremely proud of, and I am delighted that it has been shortlisted for these awards. Our aim is to ensure that the people that work with children and young people; teachers, GPs, parents; know how to support someone that might be struggling with their mental health, and that they have someone to talk to for advice and guidance."

Alongside this, CWP's Young Advisors, in collaboration with the Central and East CAMHS Primary Mental Health Team, were shortlisted for the 'Innovation in Children and Young People's MH (NHS England)' award for their Young Advisor A&E, GP and Paediatric mental health training initiative.

Claire Evans, Participation and Engagement Lead for Central and East and leader of the Young Advisor programme, said:- "I'm thrilled that our initiative has been shortlisted for the Innovation in Children and Young People's MH award. It is something that is very close to my heart and to see it recognised in such a way just reinforces that we are making a difference."

The Positive Practice Mental Health Awards are run by the Positive Practice MH Collaborative, a user led multi agency collaborative of 75 organisations, including NHS Trusts, CCG's, Police Forces, 3rd sector providers, front line charities and service user groups. The awards aim to identify, and disseminate positive practice in mental health services by working together across organisations and sectors, to facilitate shared learning, and to raise the profile of mental health with politicians and policy makers.

Liverpool Gets Happy for the International Day of Older Persons

LOCAL older people and the people and organisations that work with them are invited to join the Happy Older People Network (HOP) for a special networking and activity day in celebration of the International Day of Older Persons on 2 October 2017.  The HOP network consists of a variety of arts organisations, healthcare providers, older people, housing associations and community groups all working together to make a positive difference in the lives of older people.  New members are encouraged to come along to find out more about HOP at this event, where they can hear more about the work of members, discover new arts, culture and wellbeing initiatives and make new friends and connections.  The event is being funded by Liverpool City Council.

Rachael Treacher, Happy Older People Project Manager at Open Culture, said:- "It's brilliant that the HOP network has brought so many organisations, community groups and people with an interest in older people to the network meeting and activity day on the 2 October. Using art and culture to enrich the lives of older people is really important because it helps to reduce social isolation and supports their health and wellbeing; this is exactly what HOP has achieved since it formed in 2014."

Claire Benjamin, Deputy Director, Education and Visitors at National Museums Liverpool, said:- "We are delighted with the success of the HOP network and our collaboration with Liverpool City Council to raise awareness of the International Day of Older Persons. We want to celebrate the achievements and creativity of older people in this great City, and believe the HOP network will enable Liverpool to fulfil its ambition to become Age Friendly."

From 11am The HOP Marketplace will feature exhibition stands from member organisations at Museum of Liverpool (Education Area 1) providing information about Wheel Meet Again (Charity Award Winner), House of Memories, Healthiness Ltd, Good Gym, HealthWatch, Healthy Homes and others.

At 1.30 to 3.30pm the network meeting will take place in Education Room 3 with a programme of speakers and brief presentations including:-
