Converge is a partnership between York St John University and Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT) delivering educational opportunities for people who use mental health services. Students and staff teach our courses and support those who participate. We offer courses in sports/exercise, music, theatre, dance, fine art, creative writing, life coaching and business start-up. We run a choir and a theatre company.
Converge offers a model of collaboration between a university and a mental health service provider that makes a real difference in the lives of users of mental health services, full-time students and the university community. Each can learn from and alongside the other. It matches the ‘core business’ of its key providers: the university educates its students; the health service has a valuable provision for its clients.
