Have you had experience with the mental health services whether as a service user, family member, carer or supporter of someone with a mental health needs?
The purpose of the HSE’s Mental Health Engagement team is to provide a welcoming space for people with experience of using mental health services and those who support them to identify and deliberate on the issues important to them. The Mental Health Services can then use this information and the expertise of people with lived experience to influence the design, development and evaluation of services.
One way this is done is through the Local Forum, a monthly meeting of people wioth a diverse range of experience in Mental Health Services. The Donegal Local Forum will be holding a coffee morning and information session on the Local Forum on Monday 13th August from 11am – 1pm in Motley Crow Anti-Café, Station Roundabout, Ramelton Road, Letterkenny and there is an open invitation to all with an interest in Mental Health, that includes staff, service users, family members, carers and supporters.
There will be an opportunity to hear from service providers and people with lived experience on the day and there will be health based information and materials available from a range of local providers.
