  • Teaching and Learning projects
  • The CEIMH Teaching and Learning Development
    Fund has supported over 70 innovations in
    interdisciplinary mental health teaching and
    learning which promote service user and carer
    involvement. These have spanned a range of
    activities.

11
The mental health and learning disability project
  • Aimed to create a training programme which
  • would enhance the knowledge and skills of
  • the learning disability and mental health
  • workforce in relation to people with learning
  • disabilities who have mental ill health.

12
The Process
  • Established a project team of people who were
    experts through experience, CEIMH staff and
    psychologists
  • Made sure that the whole team was involved at
    every step of the process
  • Used the expert consultants and a CEIMH staff
    member for the phase that involved asking people
    with learning disabilities about what staff
    needed to know

13
The Focus Group
  • 1. The Dudley psychology service provided us
    with names of people who had experience of using
    learning disability and mental health services.
  • We sent each person a letter telling them about
    ourselves, inviting them to join the focus group
    we were running and explaining what would be
    involved.
  • 3. We then visited each person to introduce
    ourselves, get to know them, talk about the group
    and answer any questions they had about joining
    the group.

14
  • Some people said they would like to come to the
    group and we asked these people to sign a form to
    show they had understood what was involved.
  • We used the customer care room with kitchen at
    the Merry Hill Centre for the group.
  • 6. We put pictures of some of the services and
    staff around the room
  • 7. We greeted people on arrival with a drink and
    something to eat and caught up with their news

15
  • We then sat round the table and began to work
    together. We moved through each service and asked
    people WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOOD ABOUT THIS
    SERVICE?
  • WHAT DONT YOU LIKE ABOUT THIS SERVICE?
  • HOW WOULD YOU LIKE THIS SERVICE TO CHANGE?
  • 9. After people had given us their views and the
    reasons for them we asked them to summarise what
    they thought overall about each service by
    holding up a piece of paper with a
  • ? if their experience had been POSITIVE, and a
  • ? if their experience had been NEGATIVE.
  • 10. The group lasted for an hour and a quarter
    and at the end we thanked people for working so
    hard and paid them for their time.
