James' Place: Call out for men to participate in focus group to shape a new service for men in mental health crisis
Want to make a difference to help men encountering a mental health crisis?
Then give your views to shape a unique new service.
James' Place will open in summer 2017 and be the first non-clinical centre in the UK for men either suffering severe emotional distress or at high risk of suicide.
Located in the heart of Liverpool it will aim to provide immediate and direct access to trained mental heath experts away from the white walls and waiting lists of hospitals. James' Place will be a center that offers urgent face-to-face support for patients who are experiencing a crisis but are not in touch with mental health services.
As the partners involved in it's creation near the completion of the centre, they would like to establish a key focus group of male advisors (over 18) on Monday 27th February 11.30am-1.30pm at University of Liverpool to advise on the design of the internal environment, help with evaluating the impact of James' Place and be involved in peer support services. Lunch will be available and a £25 payment can be claimed for your time.
Your views and expertise could help to ensure that they create the best possible environment for those individuals who will be accessing James' Place. Please contact Pooja Saini on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved or complete the short questionnaire at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JPQUESTIONNAIRE where your views can still be given on the new centre.
