    The S-on-T issue is intriguing and if it helps – and if anyone has the time -i have a database of all the English NHS MH Trusts and contact info and it wouldnt be too difficult to map out and provide other local MH info , resources and issues by Trust catchment area or , ideally, get people to crowdsource this information. .

    This should have been done years ago by the Trusts themselves or at least the charities but instead of producing a decent , navigable and up to date user centred national directory /resource map people got sidetracked with over relying on political connection – New Labour/ NIMHE – and creating false impressions of progress and success and relentlessly pushing celebrity and funded narcisism from certain individuals and micro orgs – such as NSUN which wasted over £750,000 duplicating useless and baggy voluntary sector bureaucracy.

    Blogging replaced acting in a joined up way.

    It annoys me that I cant easily search for and drill down into different available MH services, activities and interest groups in my locality or quickly find out who might be able to help and support someone really struggling on their own in Newcastle, Cambridge or Southampton. If this information already exists in an easily accessible visualisation or format i certainly havent seen it nor has Paul of PJB.

    This isnt rocket science and yet we have the usual suspects blithering on about apps , social media and doing when they havent a clue what they are talking about. .

    Create a map and populate it with what people need to know and what their real concerns are by locality. No need to censor , moderate or obstruct, just need to openly enable . I’m working on something i need to finish asap but if someone gives me a hand , I’ll help them.
