  • Mailed out with Questionnaires in the post
  • Placed in a brochure stand at your service
  • Enlarged and displayed as a poster.


The MH-CoPES Poster

The MH-CoPES Poster can be displayed around services to alert consumers to the existence of the MH-CoPES Framework and Questionnaire, and to help consumers to feel comfortable and empowered about asking for a Questionnaire.

The MH-CoPES Feedback Posters
