What do we do?
Based at Commonwealth House, Albion Street Glasgow, we support colleagues and partners across the 6 local Health and Social Care Partnerships which cover Greater Glasgow and Clyde to prioritise, plan and deliver on mental health improvement. These include Glasgow City, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, West Dunbartonshire, East Dunbartonshire and Inverclyde. We address mental health improvement across the life course from perinatal, children and young people, adult and older adults, using our evidence based mental health improvement and early intervention frameworks to guide our work across the 6 HSCP areas.
Healthy Minds Network
Is our professional network for those working in or interested in mental health improvement and anti-stigma work across NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. Members come from those with an interest / remit for mental health & wellbeing within NHS GGC, Local Authorities, voluntary / third sector, local workplaces and others. The network meets quarterly.
The Healthy Minds Network aims to :
• Engage those with an interest / remit for mental health & wellbeing within NHS GGC, Local Authorities, voluntary / third sector, local workplaces and others
• Act as a conduit for sharing of good practice, information-sharing and dissemination of evidence-based & evidence-informed practice
• Provide an opportunity for seed-funding for local related initiatives (particularly anti stigma related to mental ill health) and to identify other funding sources as available
• Provide opportunities for ‘joined up’ working on issues of local, regional and national interest
