Involve's Your Voice project hosts Mental Health Action Group Meetings which allow attendees the opportunity to give their feedback to service providers and commissioners, so that services can be developed and improved through understanding the perspective of the service user.
Bi-weekly forums are held in the local area for volunteers to get together to discuss issues which affect their daily lives or to share some social time with friends. There are also opportunities to get involved in activism around points of local and national interest for mental health services.
What we do:
- Consult you on the changes you would like to see in mental health services
- Provide the forum for you to meet others at regular events and have your say
- Work to reduce the stigma around mental health in society
Who can get involved?
You do not have to be a current user of mental health services to get involved. However it does help if you have had some recent contact so you have knowledge of practices. Whatever your experiences are, your input will be valued.
What does getting involved mean?
Offering general feedback to healthcare providers
Attendance at meetings where decisions are taken about expenditure on mental health services
Representing people who use mental health services at NHS meetings and consultations.
