Feedback from Joint Event run by the Independent Mental Health Network and Community Connections on 7th November

Dear All,

It’s been almost a month since our joint Independent Mental Health Network and Community Connections event at Leatherhead. We would like to thank all those that came along and contributed to the day – it certainly generated lots of discussion about mental health services in the community.

We are pleased to say that we have now collated the table discussions’ content and highlighted key themes, as well as the overall feedback from the day. Please see the attached documents to download and view the results.

While there are many points which can contribute to an even better event next year, overall the feedback was overwhelmingly positive and the event stimulating and successful.

We will action some of the points raised and have shared the results with the Commissioners, giving them an opportunity to address and discuss the key themes. We will continue to share their responses and any additional information when it is available, so please keep checking the website.

Once again, thank you for supporting the day and we look forward to the next event.

Kind Regards,

Community Connections Partners (Catalyst, Mary Frances Trust and Richmond Fellowship) and the Independent Mental Health Network
