Community Mental Health Navigators (CMHNs) reduce capacity on GPs, mental health nurses and other frontline healthcare professionals.

The CMHN Pilot was delivered by Mental Health UK and a partnership of four charities: Rethink Mental Illness, Hafal/Adferiad Recovery, Mindwise and Support in Mind/Change Mental Health. 

Navigo and the Meridian Primary Care Network (PCN) was the pilot site in England.

As a result of the pilot project, Navigo extended the CMHNs to cover all four of the PCNs and continued to fund the post after the conclusion of the pilot project.
