Harmless and the Tomorrow Project attend the National Positive Practice Awards

Last night members of our team attended the Positive Practice Awards for Mental Health in Newcastle.

Held at the Hilton Hotel, our team were delighted to attend in honour of our beloved Tomorrow Project being shortlisted for the crisis care award for our work with those at risk of suicide.

The Positive Practice Awards are one of seldom few drives to promote effective work in the field of mental health and acknowledge and credit the vital work in this area of healthcare. All too often criticise our provision and the people working within those services, yet take little time to celebrate the compassion and drive for change that ultimately improved the lives of our service users.

Last year, Harmless walked away as a category award winner for our work with children and young people. Up against some phenomenally inspiring projects this year, we did not walk away with category winner for crisis support, however the judges felt that we were eligible for a highly commended award in our category.

The Tomorrow Project is a vital service, mobilising community support to people who are contemplating suicide or might be at risk of suicide. We take our help to them. We work with communities to change and save lives.

The project no longer has any funding, but despite this, we are determined to continue to help people facing crisis in the most helpful manner possible and we hope that this recognition award will support us in achieving this aim.

Harmless highly commended at National Positive Practice Awards in Mental Health 2013.

Last night, representatives of Harmless attended ‘The National Positive Practice Awards in Mental Health 2013′ in Sheffield.  We were nominated in the category of ‘Innovative Services in Mental Health Award’ which recognises a project or service that demonstrates innovation in the development and operation of a service supporting people with mental health problems either in-patient or community based.

The team had a really enjoyable night and were really proud to be part of such a wonderful celebration. Unfortunately on this occasion we did not win the award however, we are really happy to report that Harmless was highly commended by the judging panel, which was made up of distinguished leaders in the field of mental health, for our excellent work in the field of self harm and mental health. Although we are disappointed not to win, we were encouraged that not only were we shortlisted from over 50 organisations in our category, but we were one of only two projects from Nottingham who were nominated in all categories. Our organisation, and the work we do, has been recognised on a national level and this is a positive step for our project.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate not only the winners on the night, but also all those who were nominated and particularly those who organised the event. It was really reassuring that there are many organisations and individuals who are looking to make a positive difference in the field of mental health and we very much want to be part of that. We will continue to work hard for all those who are affected by self harm and mental health.
