"There was so much fear and denial around me becoming unwell again that it was difficult to be honest and open about what I was experiencing. I wanted to create something that communicated what I was going through and what I needed to do to help me get by on a day-to-day basis, as well as in crisis.

I showed my Social Worker The Pocket Advocate and she encouraged me to apply for funding with the aim of developing this idea to help others who experience similar challenges."

Danielle Singer Moore, Founder of Project Embrace.

Project Embrace pioneers user-led innovations that support people with mental health conditions, to self-manage and recover.

Our insight and consultation is inspired by over 30 years of experience within mental health and psychiatric services.

If a person can’t communicate what they need because they have never developed the language or confidence to express those needs - their ability to respond does not exist, and they are dependent upon others to take that responsibility for them.

We believe that with the right support the cycles of crisis and relapse can be prevented; that a person has the power to take responsibility for the worsening of their symptoms, and become respected as an equal voice in the care they receive.

The Pocket Advocate was awarded an innovation and development grant from the London Borough of Camden, and partnered with The James Wigg Practice, and The Kentish Town Improvement Fund. In 2014 this service was piloted within Camden & Islington's NHS Foundation Trust.

Since then we have worked with a variety of local and national organisations to raise awareness, and adapt our services for people in a range of environments including education, healthcare, probation, employment, and the workplace.

Project Embrace is a Social Enterprise. The services we provide are designed to improve people’s lives, and bring benefit to the wider community. We are a Community Interest Company. This is to ensure that the social mission of the company is protected, and its assets are used to fulfil community purpose.
