The Mental Health Carers Voice

Carers in Mind holds regular events for carers to tell us what they need, both from our own service and from the health and social care services. Each time we meet, we tell you what we have done based on your feedback. There may be opportunities to join focus groups to achieve specific goals. Contact us at [email protected] if you would like to attend the next consultation.

Getting your views heard

Carers in Mind aims to promote the voice of mental health carers by empowering and supporting them in becoming involved in improving services. 

There are often changes in the way health and social care services are delivered and it is important for local commissioners and service providers to listen to your views. We aim to ensure you are given opportunities to be involved in local changes that are relevant to you.

We attend a range of strategic meetings where we represent the views of local mental health carers, let us know what you think and we can work to get your views heard.

Through our newsletter and email bulletins we also give information on national strategies that are open to consultation and where mental health carers’ views are essential. 

If you would like more information on how you can become involved in improving services please contact 020 8940 7384 or email [email protected]
