Greater Manchester i-THRIVE and young people

The Greater Manchester i-THRIVE (GM i-THRIVE) programme uses the THRIVE Framework for system change (Wolpert et al 2019) to improve mental health outcomes for the children and young people of Greater Manchester.

GM i-THRIVE is aiming to implement the THRIVE framework for system change and it’s principles across all 10 Greater Manchester localities. Working with the Greater Manchester workforce, children, young people and families, and all other stakeholders, we are aiming to improve mental health support and provision across Greater Manchester and have the whole system working in a thrive-like way.

We are developing close relationships with provider and commissioning networks, identifying a range of local implementation leads and supporting the creation of ‘THRIVE informed’ local teams. Over the course of the programme, we will provide training across the workforce to support delivery of THRIVE-like services.   In addition we will coach local leads through a THRIVE-informed transformation process and work flexibly to understand the specific needs and requirements of each Greater Manchester locality.
