Event description

Description

Please come along if you have an interest in mental health services in Somerset, and would like to share your feedback in order to help shape the delivery of local mental health services.

As usual, we're keen to involve a wide range of people from across the community, including:

  • Anybody who is currently accessing mental health services, or has done in the past
  • Anybody who is not currently accessing mental health services, but envisages that they may do so in the future
  • Anybody with lived experience of mental ill health
  • Family members, carers, and groups that support people with mental ill health

The theme for this meeting is 'What else is out there and going on?'

We'll hear about a Recovery College for Somerset, an initiative proposed by Dr Rani Bora and supported by the Well Wessex group, to support better mental health for Somerset.

We will also be joined by Lucy Nicholls, Patient and Public Involvement Manager from Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, to discuss:

  • How to enable patients/service users to communicate more directly with their local team managers and services.
  • What do people think about the use of advancing IT, such as video linking and apps, to enable access to treatment and support for mental health conditions

Groups/Agencies attending are welcome to bring informal stands.

Email info@somersetmentalhealthhub.org.uk if you would like to see the Agenda in advance.

Refreshments provided. Staff and volunteers from agencies are welcome, and we would really appreciate it if you could bring at least two of your clients. Service users can be reimbursed for travel expenses through a claim form that will be provided on the day (please note the funds are transferred after the event, cash cannot be provided on the day).

If you would like to register by phone, please call Spark Somerset on 01460 202970.
