ImROC was initially funded by DoH to support organisations to offer more recovery focused support in line with the Mental Health Policy document ‘No Health Without Mental Health’.
ImROC methodology based on ten organisational challenges is available to read here. This has been refined over the past 15 years to extend beyond organisations into system wide working across all conditions and populations.
The demand for ImROC services is growing year on year. We support the transformation of services and systems to enable people using them to recover and live well. We support the shifts from professionally led to coproduced, from symptom and problem focused to strengths and goal focused, from seeing individuals in isolation to taking their family, friends and social networks into account, from service based to whole community informed and led.
There are currently 54 NHS Mental Health Trusts focusing predominantly on delivering NHS mental health services. To date ImROC has worked with the majority of these organisations as well as many social care voluntary services and charities.
As UK health and care policy evolves, ImROC has been asked to advise and work with English Integrated Care Systems. Negotiations with the evolving English Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) mean that ImROC is currently supporting 5 health and care systems nationally.
At both organisation and system level the request to ImROC is based on the strong recovery focused values it offers in coproduction and facilitation.
