We opened our Talking Therapies service in Warrington, in partnership with Cheshire & Wirral NHS Partnership Trust.


Helen Mackay was appointed as CEO, having worked for MHM since 1987!


MHM opened the first 'Payment by Results' (PBR) service in Darlington, and the first 'Any Qualified Provider' (AQP) service in Teesside.


We opened our Talking Therapies service in Northumberland, in partnership with Sunderland Counselling Services and Efficacy. This was also a successful year for our Social Care services in the North-East, with a number of contracts being extended and won across Sunderland, South Tyneside and Gateshead. This covered a wide variety of services from Advocacy, Housing, Advice and Guidance and Mental Health User Voice. In 2015 Julie Haley was appointed as the new Head of Social Care.


In this year we were very proud to secure National Helpline accreditation, while also extending our Helpline offering to Coventry and Kent.  After a successful partnership bid with Midlands NHS Trust, Making Space and The Wise Group, we were part of the launch of a community based service in Staffordshire.

MHM also secured a Positive Practice in Mental Health award in recognition for our evidence-based successful partnership working


2017 was an exciting year for MHM, with our social care services expanding even more.  We retained contracts in Stockton and Hartlepool and we were successful in moving into new areas across the Midlands and Leicestershire delivering community-based support. This year we also secured our York Haven service, commissioned by and in partnership with Tees Esk Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust, which continues to go from strength to strength supporting those most at need in York.

Funding from the Department of Work and Pensions was released to support IAPT services nationally to deliver employment support. MHM were successful in securing some of this funding and expanding into Hertfordshire to work alongside the IAPT team there to deliver an integrated service.

Our Helpline also expanded, delivering our first specialist service for veterans in partnership with Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust, Walking with the Wounded, Lincolnshire NHS Partnership Foundation Trust and North Essex NHS.  In addition, our helpline began supporting crisis and recovery teams in Gloucestershire and across the midlands.
