A RECOVERY programme launched at Cygnet Hospital in Kewstoke has been honoured at the National Service User Awards ceremony.
The event celebrates service initiatives in inpatient mental health establishments and the programme which caught the judges’ attention was My Awareness and Action Plan (MAAP).
This scheme, which allows patients to take control of their own recovery, won the Innovations in My Shared Pathway and Recovery award.
It also provides staff with a helpful summary of how best to support a service user in times of crisis. Dr Suzannah Tyler, forensic psychologist at Cygnet Hospital, said: “It’s so important to celebrate the successes of services users and to share best practice for the benefit of everyone.
“This award is a hugely inspiring and moving tribute to the exceptional work being led by service users, which is happening throughout mental health services across the country.”
