Profiling Best Practice

MHPF is committed to the showcasing and development of evidenced best practice models and resources to support the development of the voluntary and community sector and improve mental health service delivery. Bringing together the knowledge and expertise from across our membership, MHPF highlights the very best in service design, innovation and support on a national level. 

MHPF members are invited to contribute to conversations on national areas of focus in mental health and input good evidence of service delivery which is making a positive difference to the lives of people with mental health problems. This input is vital to ensure better understanding of the diverse range of services on offer from the voluntary and community sector and the inclusion of the sector as a planning partner.

Call outs for information are issued throughout the year, but if members would like to share any case studies from their services in the areas of focus detailed on this website please contact the MHPF team on

MHPF also hosts a series of Awards highlighting the strengths and sucesses of the mental health service provision across the sector. Further information about past awards can be found here.

We want to pilot innovative new concepts to positively influence the strategic direction of mental health services
