Police placement project nominated for HPMA Excellence Award
Earlier this week, we received the fantastic news that we've been shortlisted in the HPMA Awards 2019 for our mental health support in policing project.
‘Reducing stigma and building relationships: police, mental health services and service users’ has been shortlisted for The University of Bradford award for cross-sector working category.
The project involves placements for junior police officers as part of their on-the-job training, with the aim to develop compassion and understanding in police officers dealing with people with mental health problems.
We'd like to say a massive congratulations to our twelve clinical services that have been involved:
- Community Enhanced Recovery Team (CERT)
- Liaison Service (providing mental health assessment and input to patients of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
- Burbage Ward, Stanage Ward, and Maple Ward (all adult acute mental health inpatient wards
- G1 Ward (dementia inpatient ward)
- Gender Identity Service
- Early Intervention in Psychosis Service
- Mental Health Recovery Team (North)
- Intensive Rehabilitation Service
- Assessment and Treatment Service (inpatient service for people with a learning disability and/or autism and challenging behaviour)
- the Single Point of Access for adult mental health services (mental health crisis service).
We'd also like to say a special congratulations to Leanne Brouder, from CERT, who leads on the project!
Leanne was awarded the Outstanding Achievement by an Individual award at our Recognition and Achievement Awards last month, in part for her work on this project.
