The highly prestigious National Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards are now in their fourth year and have grown to 17 award categories, with over 500 nominations, and over 120 judges.
The awards celebrate and share positive practice from across England, with NHS, Local Authority, Care Commissioning Groups, and third sector organisations all being highlighted for their work.
The awards this year are being co-hosted by Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and South West London and St Georges Mental Health NHS Trust, and will take place in Woking on 13 October.
As co-hosts, South West London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust (SWLSTG) are pleased that two of our teams have been recognised for their hard work – the Psychological Therapies Team, Avalon Ward was shortlisted in Eating Disorders Services. There is a little friendly competition in the Diversity and Equality in Service Delivery category, with both Trusts delighted to have teams shortlisted – SWLSTG for their Deaf CAMHS Outreach Team and SABP for their Improving Access to Psychological therapies for people with learning disabilities programme.
