You can get involved in the network in several different ways, we try to make it accessible for everyone to participate in a way that feels comfortable to them.
How you can get involved:
Send us a version of your experiences of the mental health services in Surrey, this can be written, recorded or videoed. Having these real stories allows us to create change in the system as we can use them as evidence of what is working well and where more work is needed
Project groups provide an opportunity for members to get involved in small groups, providing input in a way that suits them and their needs on a single topic that they have lived experience of
Our partners often ask the network to share their opinions or experience of mental health services, this is commonly in the form of a questionnaire. If you have knowledge of the service in focus please do share your experiences in this way
We are always looking for stories to share with our community about what is really happening in Surrey and North East Hampshire’s mental health services. If you have used a service or have an interesting recent experience you would like to share with others please let us know
Take the lead on an area of our work and represent the network at meetings held by other organisations
This may be by promoting the network, helping to man a stand at an engagement event or helping to run a virtual group
We have lots of projects that you can get involved with. Visit the projects page for further details.
Phone or text the IMHN coordinator on 07305 009869 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us how you would like to be involved or to share your story or blog post.
