Hub of Hope 

The ‘Hub of Hope’ is an online platform and Mobile Phone App that is free to download and access.  It provides an online registry of local and national services that are in place to help people with a variety of mental health issues.  The App has been designed by the charity ‘Chasing the Stigma’ and whilst still in the fairly early stages of development, it does contain an extensive list of organisations available to help people.

Staff may find the service useful either in a personal capacity or to help colleagues, or during their interactions with members of the public who are suffering with mental health problems. 

The App does not require you to enter any personal details – simply a location or postcode will return a list of organisations available along with their contact details.

The creators are looking to get this App installed on Galaxy devices in the New year, but in the meantime it can accessed via https://hubofhope.co.uk/, or by downloading the App onto your mobile phone.
