Impact and outcomes
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.
The Pod Team are contactable from 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 4pm on Friday.Address: The Pod
