What we’ve done so far
The Coproduction Network was set up in November 2019 and we’ve done lots of exciting work since then. We have set up projects with specific communities to make meaningful changes to the way Leeds Mental Wellbeing Service works and connect people across the city. We have also made links between people who use the service and decision makers, working towards an equal partnership in shaping how the service works.
We are currently running two projects: LS9 Lives and Leeds LGBT+ Minds. However, if you have any other specific areas of interest, please let us know – it could be the basis for a future project!
Our LS9 Lives project is focused on improving mental wellbeing for people living under the LS9 postcode of Leeds – that includes Burmantofts, Harehills and Richmond Hill, amongst other areas. We are exploring what types of support might be most useful for people in these areas, and how Leeds Mental Wellbeing Service can work alongside the people and community provide that. The project team have been on walkarounds in the LS9 area and made links with local organisations and community centres. We are currently working on building these relationships, with a focus on reducing stigma around mental health and collecting data about people’s experiences with Leeds Mental Wellbeing Service.
