*NEt comprises the NTWSU&C network and another sub-regional one that covers the 6 local authorities (Durham,Darlington,Hartlepool,Middlesbrough etc) encompassed by the TEWV (Tees, Esk and Wear Valley) mental health trust. So it’s like a stepped or layered model, I guess: individuals alone or in their groups or projects in their locality>>sub-regional network>>regional network
