The ‘555’ project aims to make the voice of Essex mental health services users heard by the people who commission the service. 

Please see the webpage at http://www.ecdp.org.uk/555

In partnership with Healthwatch Essex, ecdp is running focus groups across Essex to gather the lived experience of people who have used, or are using, mental health services.

Demand for services is rising and financial cutbacks are increasing, so mental health services face a real challenge. How best should they spend their budget to improve the lives of service users in Essex? Listening to today’s Essex service users can help support the design of services for the next generation of mental health patients.
