The Mental Health Sustainability Programme is pleased to share with providers in it's Programme an online 'one-stop shop' of resources.
With these resources we are aiming to provide you with a repository of good quality information from a variety of sources about how to manage home working, what a good marketing strategy looks like and more, that are particularly applicable as we navigate the pandemic.
This collection of resources has been in part kindly provided by the private sector partners in our Mental Health Sustainability Programme, whilst other resources and links are from publicly available sources. We have chosen to focus on free resources/resources not behind a paywall or member sign up. This is to be considerate of the demands, finances and access needs for small providers in this Programme.
