"Wells Road Centre: part 2"

About: Forensic mental health

(as a volunteer/advocate),

We had another group discussion to decide how we could increase patients' awareness of how to access their notes. The project needs to be big, bright and interactive. Many suggestions were made, including comic books, pizza and revolving displays. After much deliberation, we went with the idea of having a DJ playing 'records' and paper 'fortune- tellers' (design based on the DJ). Craft ideas and further Wells Road visits are being planned; Involvement will be working in collaboration with patients from Thurland ward to make this idea a reality!

Hi Batman!

It's good to hear about the progress from the earlier posting and how quickly you have responded to patients as a volunteer.

I have sent the posting to Thurland ward staff to print out for patients as not everyone can access Patient Opinion's website.

Looking forward to part 3 and hearing more about the project.

Keep up the good work!
