About the PPH study visits
This is one of a series of study visits to give you a practical insight into how co-production is being developed in depth across England
About Stockport PPH
Stockport Council with Pennine Care NHS Trust are redesigning mental health services to discharge people from specialist services through to supportive and welcoming community alternatives. Through the development of local wellbeing centres, by enlisting the support of volunteers and peer support groups, and by giving people the use of personal budgets to direct their own recovery, many people will go on to find support in non- clinical services after discharge. These same opportunities, including a voluntary sector co-produced crisis service, extend options for GP referral providing an alternative to the Mental Health Trust for people experiencing mental distress and for people wishing to manage their difficulties and build resilience in a community setting.
About the day
Stockport will host an expert learning event to influence senior commissioners and staff. SUN and Paxton Green will be attending this event to present on their approach to co-production. All other localities are welcome to attend this session if they have been unable to attend the previous study visits.
