Event description

Description

It’s nice to not feel alone and know people care

At a time of austerity and cuts to services, the most marginalised in our communities, including vulnerable migrants, feel ignored and are crying out for support.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mind believes that co-production, joint working and sharing what works has the potential to address the gap between the traumatic migratory experience and the commissioning of mainstream mental health services.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our free half day conference aims to share the extensive learning generated from seven pilot projects supported by Mind. With funding from City Bridge Trust, the city of london corporation’s charity, these projects have developed practical approaches to engage migrant communities and local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), accross seven london boroughs.

Our aim was to help decision makers and service providers better understand and assess the needs of vulnerable migrants. This can lead to improved access to local services and cultually sensitive support.

The conference will also give mental health service providers and commissioners an opportunity to hear about Mind's Influencer Manual. A practical resource emerging from the collective experiences of our pilot projects. Local Minds involved in producing this manual will be sharing learning on how it can be used to infleunce and work with commissioners to improve service development and delivery.

We are greateful to the City Bridge Trust for funding this vital piece of work and to the Refugee Council for endorsing the manual.
