Monmouthshire Mental Health Service User and Carer Network and Forum

November Forum and Network will be at The Sessions House Usk on Wednesday 28 November at 1.30 pm.   This is the final Forum and network meeting of this year.

Forum 1.30 – 2.30.This will be Bernard Boniface’s last Forum before moving on, and it is hoped that as many as possible will try to attend.  On the agenda will be: the draft leaflet about mental health in Monmouthshire – for your comments and suggestions.  

Gwent Patient’s Panel – some of you volunteered to become involved, and Rhian Lewis now wants to take up those offers.   Time to stand up and be counted!

Independent Police Complaints Commission.  The IPCC ran one workshop at the Mind Cymru conference in Cardiff this week.   They are keen to make recommendations about the additional training of police officers, especially in relation to mental health issues, and the way in which people with mental ill health should be supported and attended to.  This could provide an opportunity to meet with the IPCC and discuss some of the situation in which people have found themselves, and  how they could have been better dealt with.  This will be discussed and hopefully a decision made about becoming involved with this project. 

Any Other Business on the day.

Network 2.45 – 3.45

An opportunity to see a short video (15 mins) about the Mental Capacity Act, and for discussion.  

Discussion about whether there is support for an event in the Spring to focus on Stigma and similar issues.

 If there is time we will also show the last two speakers in the video “Listen to Me – part viewed in September.

Please come if you can – and your friends are also welcome.
