Across Mental Health Matters a number of our services have been nominated for awards recently and we want to congratulate everyone involved.

Our Op COURAGE Midlands service was a finalist in the ‘Innovation and Improvement in Reducing Healthcare Inequalities' award category at the HSJ (Health Service Journal) Awards which took place last week. The work of the team was recognised for ‘innovative and creative initiatives which aim to reduce healthcare inequalities at a national or local level’.

The Brighter Futures Employment service, part of the Durham Health Wellbeing Alliance, has been selected as a finalist of the Health & Wellbeing Award at the County Durham Together Awards, run by The Northern Echo newspaper.

Lastly, we have been nominated for two awards at the Employment Related Services Association Awards:

Frontline Manager of the year – Matt Woodward, Warrington Employment

Matt has consistently demonstrated his commitment to excellence, innovation, and the experience of his team and service users.
