II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
Promoting positive mental health and well-being is a strategic priority for both Camden and Islington. For the past 4 years the councils have jointly commissioned the provision of mental health awareness and suicide prevention awareness training services. This training supports the capacity and capability of communities and key public facing services: to help themselves and others when experiencing mental health distress, to access support at an early stage, and to tackle the stigma and discrimination around mental health and ill-health. It also supports one of our strategic suicide prevention priorities across Camden and Islington.
The mental health awareness training service will sit within a broad cross-borough approach to mental health promotion and suicide prevention.
The aims of this training service will be to:
— raise awareness and improve understanding of mental health, including suicide risk among the Camden and Islington populations,
— reduce stigma and discrimination around mental health at community level,
— raise awareness and understanding of mental health and mental health support services amongst key local workforces in order to recognise and support mental health problems,
— reduce stigma and discrimination around mental health within the workplace, and
— promote recovery and positive outcomes for young people and adults with mental health problems.
The high quality service will meet the mental health learning and support needs of people working, living and volunteering within the two boroughs.
