This online community is managed by psychology clinicians and offers a platform which can be accessed anywhere at any time. NHS Northamptonshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has commissioned the new service in the county, and is working with the Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) Integrated Response Hub (Mental Health Number) to manage service user access to the platform.

For an initial period, 250 licenses are available to people across the county who are assessed to benefit from the support which Togetherall offers.

Morgan Price, Commissioning Manager for Mental Health at Northamptonshire CCG, said: “Mental health difficulties can often be very complex and we recognise that it is essential to offer a range of different care methods which meet the needs of individuals.

“By commissioning this new service we can offer access to an innovative platform which can be accessed anywhere at any time.

“We are working with our colleagues at NHFT to ensure that those who will benefit from this platform receive support to integrate this into their care plans.”

Togetherall is a new service to be offered in Northamptonshire, and the new digital offer has been funded by Northamptonshire CCG through service development funding (SDF) for suicide prevention. The successful bid was supported by Public Health Northamptonshire.
