Opportunities For Involvement in National Developments in Mental Health

If you have personal experience of mental distress, or provide friends/family carer support to somebody who has, then this may be for you.

The NMHDU (National Mental Health Development Unit – www.nmhdu.org.uk ) is part of the Department of Health, working to convert national policy in mental health and social care into active use. They develop methods, practices and resources that help improve health and social care services.

They need the whole of their work to involve people with experience of mental health problems, and the friends-and-family who support them, so the best possible results can be achieved for all concerned.

They have opportunities for people to get involved now.

If you are already involved in this work, or want to find out about the work and how people are supported, the following events may interest you:
