Mind The Gap
Mind the Gap was a collaborative project between Sheffield Flourish and Healthwatch Sheffield. The aim was to identify the gaps in mental health services and suggestions for their improvements. Instead of using standard online surveys, we decided to have meaningful and friendly conversations with people from different age groups, ethnic backgrounds, and different mental health journeys. During August and September 2020, we talked to 9 people who generously shared their invaluable experiences of using mental health services. The result of this survey is published as a report by Healthwatch Sheffield, which is available on their website: The Mental Health Journey: Stories from users of Mental Health services in Sheffield
We are pleased to be publishing their individual stories on our own website over the next few weeks and hope these powerful and important accounts help improve mental health services in Sheffield.
