Promoting Excellence In Psychological Health & Wellbeing

The Psychological Professions Network (PPN) started in Kent, Surrey and Sussex and is expanding across the South East of England. It is commissioned by Health Education England (HEE) working across the South East to provide a joined-up voice for all psychological professionals and those aspiring to join the psychological professions workforce in workforce planning and development, and to support excellence in practice.

The Psychological Professions Network aims to serve the needs of NHS policy and practice, alongside the needs of its members and the wider public. However, it does not speak ‘on behalf of’ Health Education England or any other NHS body. It is accountable to the Mental Health Programme Board for fulfilling the functions it has been commissioned to deliver.

The PPN KSS also has a Board that meets quarterly, which includes psychological professionals and key stakeholders, including experts by experience across the region. The Board oversees the work of PPN KSS and the community of practice, which includes PPN hosted regional networks (see our subnetworks page). The PPN KSS reports to the Mental Health Programme Board, and ultimately upwards to the Integrated Programme Board at HEE South East, as well as PPN England. Some projects may additionally report to the National Psychological Professions Workforce Group.
