About us and you (or the person the survey is relevant to)

IMHP (Improve Mental Health Provision)(Improving Mental Health Provision CIC) is a co-productive non-profit organisation supporting mental health and well being in Medway. Our approach is collaborative and encourages wide participation and empowerment.

. We are conducting an independent survey of the experiences that service users, friends, family, carers, and professionals have had with the mental health services. The results of this will be used as evidence for a need to increase funding and provision and to change practice where needed. It will also be utilised by established charities and non-profit organisations to enhance their delivery and to bid for funding to bridge the gaps. Additionally a case for an alternative provision that will improve access for service users and relieve pressure on front line services will be built.

Thank you for taking part in this survey and helping us to highlight areas of need within the mental health services. It is fine to skip any questions that you would rather not answer, of course receiving full surveys will help us to make a stronger case for change but all information that you’re willing to provide is useful and much appreciated. These surveys are anonymous and will only be used to inform the appropriate bodies of areas of concern and to assist charities and non-profit organisations in delivering further mental health support.

If you have difficulty with filling in forms for any reason and would like to participate please ask someone to help.

Professionals and carers are welcome to submit a survey each for more than one person they support, one survey per personal use please to keep numbers accurate. Many thanks!
