This non-profit organisation developed the Butabika-East London Link partnership to improve the provision of mental health services in Uganda and the UK.

The service users were trained and empowered to improve mental health services. The trained workers delivered psychological treatments across 14 regional sites.  

The judges said that this partnership has sustained over many years with high levels of service user engagement in both countries and represents the best of the NHS. This project has renewed its vision and ambition regularly and the judges felt that there were clear benefits identified for service users and stakeholders.
