Promoting Excellence In Psychological Health & Wellbeing

PPN South West is committed to bringing the psychological professions together to support clinical excellence, share knowledge, promote understanding and inform debate and decision making.

Communities of Practice provide the opportunity for practitioners, trainees and stakeholders to come together under common clinical themes and topics. They are run by their own members with support from the PPN. Members are offered the opportunity to join the Communities of Practice that interest them when they become members of the network. Through this you can access topic specific events, contribute to discussion boards and access resources.

If you would like to bring your group into the network and use the support of PPN SW to set up your own Community of Practice please contact us by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or one of the Team below:
