New research from the International Centre for Mental Health Social Research has been published. People with experience of using NHS mental health services often find that services focus on ‘illness’ rather than ‘health’, which is not always conducive to their recovery. NHS mental health services do not routinely provide knowledge about how to look after our minds. However, there is some pilot evidence that mental effectiveness training provided by the social enterprise Mindapples helps people to learn about their own minds and self-manage their stress (Webber et al., 2015). It is possible that it could similarly help people who have experience of using mental health services.
