Frontline mental health professionals are in an ideal position to help their vulnerable clients and service users. Mental Health North East members currently lack the basic knowledge of energy efficiency measures or what assistance is available for their vulnerable service users and clients. The Warm Minds Pilot project aims to address this discrepancy. The aim of the Warm Minds project is to investigate the potential of mental health focussed organisations as a channel for providing advice and support to fuel poor households. MHNE in partnership with NEA, propose to develop a bespoke training course for MHNE members to enable their frontline staff to assist and support their vulnerable service users. Prior to the project delivery, NEA will assist MHNE by carrying out an in-depth profiling of the region to ensure that the training is relevant and tailored to frontline mental health professionals in the North East.
