Funding to make a video for clients using the CITOP service (Crisis and Intervention Team for Older People)

The Clinical Psychology department raised some money for Health Stars last year and I wondered whether we would be able to use this money to pay one of our service users to make a film about our other service users that could be used in a number of different ways. The first, for them (the service users) to present to the board about the work that is being done. The second is to help other service users (particularly at the beginning of their journey). The third is to promote the fact that older people suffer with mental health problems and often their voice is ignored. Thanks in advance.

Colouring Pencils for Waiting Room

East Riding Partnership Addiction Services would like to put a request in for some packs of coloured pencils. In our waiting room we have a Patient Engagement Folder, which has puzzles and colouring therapy pages in it. The colouring is very popular with patients but sadly the colouring pencils have gone missing.
