This project is an innovative way in which psychological interventions are provided in mental health services.
SHARP stands for Social Inclusion, Hope and Recovery Project. It is a small multidisciplinary team of highly skilled professionals that provide interventions. These interventions have a solid research evidence base but are poorly implemented within standard care. The team provides psychological (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Family and Motivational Interventions) and social (Social Inclusion, Healthy Living Programme) interventions. These interventions aim to increase social inclusion and facilitate recovery.
