Conference to hear views of mental health service users

  • Comment

Mental health service users and their carers will be able to contribute to the future of mental health care in England, at an NHS conference for people based in Yorkshire and Humber.

The event, taking place next year on March 29 at Fieldhead Hospital, Wakefield, is organised by NHS Yorkshire and the Humber in order to shape New Horizon; a new national strategy for mental health and well-being in England.  

Ninety people including Professor Louis Appleby, the national director for Mental Health for England, have been invited to the event. It will provide an important opportunity for clinicians and other health care professionals to hear the views of the people who use mental health services and who will be most affected by changes made to them.

Professor Appleby said: ‘Getting mental health right benefits the whole of our society - it’s something we should all be concerned about. One in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives which impacts upon their relationships, jobs and physical health.’
