WMHWB Forum - Get involved

Would you like to influence decision making about Mental Health Services in Wales?

You can do this by becoming a national member of the Wales Mental Health and Well-being Forum. There are currently opportunities for people who have personal experience of Mental Health Services and their carers, friends and family.  In particular the Forum is looking to increase diversity by inviting service user and carer representatives from a wide range of groups.

The Forum brings together the service user and carer member representatives from the Local Partnership Boards across Wales, the service user and carer members of the National Partnership Board and ten service users and carers appointed into national roles.

This recruitment drive is for the independent national role only.

Since the Forum was established in 2013 the Forum has influenced positive change in Mental Health services and continues to respond to policy and ongoing strategy and delivery plan development. The Forum provides a perspective of the personal experiences of the members i.e. those using mental health services and their carers, friends and family.

To be effective, it is important that the Forum membership represents the diversity of our country and includes a strong voice for people who experience a range of disadvantages. We are therefore looking for people with personal experience of mental health services who will enhance the makeup of the Forum in a number of ways. We are looking for people to help support communities from across Wales and to ensure that existing network are engaged in the work of the Forum.

If you are passionate about improving mental health for all our communities, then please get in touch.
