The next meeting of this Forum will be at The Sessions House, 43 Maryport Street, Usk on Wednesday 20th February, 1.30 – 3.45 with a break in the middle.  You are welcome to arrive from 1pm onwards for a hot drink and a chat before the meeting starts.

As the Forum now meets once every two months it is important to take this opportunity to meet with others and talk about developments in our services and other matters.   Also, on this day there will be an opportunity to meet Jennifer Berry, the newly appointed Joint Commissioner for Mental Health in Monmouthshire.   Jennifer Berry has taken over the post recently vacated by Bernard Boniface, and this would be a good time to welcome her and also find out about her hopes for mental health services in our County.  Karen Vowles, Assistant Director, Health and Social Care, GAVO also hopes to come along.
