Rethink Mental Illness

Rethink Mental Illness is a national charity that supports people with severe mental illness to live a better quality of life.

Rethink Mental Illness is now undertaking the secure care work of the Innovation Network, which includes improving care planning and CPA, collaborative risk assessment and safety planning, and peer support. These interventions will all be evaluated over the course of the next 18 months and there will be updates during that time.

Rethink Mental Illness are also planning a big piece of work In secure care that aims to give service users a better voice in improving services by collecting life stories from service users. The Head of Campaigns, Lara Carmona, recently sent this message to all the Recovery and Outcomes Groups:

“Rethink Mental Illness is preparing a massive piece of work to transform secure care. We know that not enough is being done to improve the voice of people using services in secure care settings. We want to change that.

We are very interested in your involvement in our project and we would like to know how we might best work with you.”

We will be hearing more about this work at future meetings and if you would like to find out more about the work of Rethink Mental Illness, please visit their website at:
