The MIN aims to establish a community of practice concerned with:

  • Mental health and recovery for survivors of modern slavery
  • Supporting transition for survivors of modern slavery
  • Facilitating positive therapeutic encounters with frontline staff.

The MIN is a joint initiative of the Institute of Mental Health and the Care and Custody Lever project team of the Rights Lab, a beacon of excellence at the University of Nottingham.

The Post-Slavery Mental Health Managed Innovation Network arises from the acknowledgement that mental health and modern slavery are complex issues requiring inter-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder, and multi-agency responses.

The network will include people with lived experience, clinicians, third sector organisations, independent/private sector representatives, relevant statutory services such as police and NHS representatives, and academics working in the areas of mental health and modern slavery.
