Welcome to the MHP-Hands website. This website is aimed at practitioners of mental health promotion in three settings:
- Older people’s homes
Running from 2010-2013, MHP-Hands is developing a set of implementation manuals for MHP. These will be available in 7 languages. Based on ProMenPol, it will also produce a training course in how to use the implementation manuals.
MHP-Hands aims to equip:
- Teachers and administrations in schools
- Human resources (HR) professionals, management representatives and occupational physicians in the workplace
- Care workers, doctors, administrative staff and caregivers in older people’s living environments
To understand the factors critical to mental health maintenance and promotion and to initiate, implement and monitor policy and programme development in their organisations.
MHP-Hands will look to field-test the manuals in real life settings. You can take part in this activity by registering as an MHP-Hands member. MHP-Hands will provide training and support to all of the field trial sites.
If you would like to support the development of the MHP-Hands programme, please send an email to the Project Co-ordinator Dr Richard Wynne r [dot] wynne [at] wrc-research.ie and we will be in contact with you soon.
