Independent Mental Health Network

 

Official MH Logo

This Network for people who have experienced mental ill health and carers is now well established. The Coordinating Group elected their Co-Chairs, Eleanor Levy and Janice Clark at their meeting in May, and are now meeting bi-monthly.

They produced an Update which was shared widely across Surrey to let
people know what had been achieved so far, and at their meeting in July
they:

  • Agreed actions with health and social care commissioners to take forward priority issues raised by the Group
  • Agreed “What the Network will look like and how it will work”
  • Agreed a draft Work Programme for the coming year, and
  • Discussed the ideas for the name for the Network which had been put forward at the workshop held last September

Funding for the new Network has been agreed with Mental Health Commissioners, and Network’s Coordinator has been recruited. Joanna MacPherson joined the team in October 2018.
