This is affecting us all at work and at home. We’re working hard to keep services running and focusing on the most critical. This means some services may be affected. For help, call 08085 834333.Read our latest update
The Pod, Coventry’s national award winning mental health service, is committed to working in a collaborative and personalised way. Each year we work directly with 250 people referred to us by care co-ordinators in the Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust Integrated Practice Units. However, as a public facing service (we have a café and hire rooms) our footfall and reach has, in the last 12 months, exceeded 15,000 – this is important as it provides the impetus for collaboration, co-production, connectivity and partnership – which, by default, dispels myths about mental health.
There is extensive qualitative and quantitative evidence in regards to the outcomes achieved through this way of working, with clear evidence of less service dependency for people and a reduced number of readmissions into acute mental health services and reliance on outpatient appointments or other supportive health services.
