Hear Us / 

Hear Us have been running the Linkworking Project since Oct 2007 within local mental health services within the Croydon borough, working as a link between staff and service users to try and shape mental health services to meet the needs of service users.

“The team of Hear Us Linkworkers are all current or ex service users who have been through their own mental health issues and used local services to support their recovery.   Using their experiences to help others, the Linkworkers are committed to supporting positive mental health in Croydon by supporting service users and help to develop services that provide the help needed, as and when it is needed.”

The Linkworking Project runs in different mental health services in Croydon, providing support to service users whilst also giving them a chance to raise any issues, concerns or compliments within that service, so that we can help support positive changes to be made and shape services to suit the service user.

Over the last year the Linkworking project has gone from strength to strength, we have 20 Linkworkers covering 13 wards and services and running 17 sessions per week.  Some of the Linkworkers also get involved in other areas of the services that South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust (SLaM) cover such as sitting on interview panels for recruitment and co-delivering training across the trust and beyond. This is done through the South London and Maudsley NHS Trusts (SLaM) Involvement Register

“The Linkworking mission is to improve the quality of Croydon’s mental health services commissioned in Croydon, by lobbying and campaigning on local mental health issues based on feedback from service users raised through our Linkworkers.”
