Practise Hope is a primary care initiative for 10 – 25 year olds who are thinking of suicide or self-harming. This pioneering initiative was developed in partnership with Health Education England and is based on the PACE setter model, a development programme for primary care to lead the way in changing culture and improving services around mental health in practices. The project is being delivered in GP surgeries across the UK and includes a tightly managed schedule of kick-off meetings, information gathering via surveys, delivery of clinical and non-clinical virtual training (delivered by freelance trainers), collation of data and reporting back to individual surgeries. Co-production is central to the project, so children and young people, their families, other partners and surgery staff are involved in creating new ways of working.
