MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE USER AND CARER RESEARCH PROJECT

A VOICE FOR PEOPLE USING MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES IN WALES AND THEIR CARERS

REGIONAL FOCUS GROUPS

We have arranged seven Focus Groups across Wales, one in each of the proposed new Health Board areas, to consider and discuss the central issues in this research project. These are:

Your Current Experience of Involvement at both a local and national level
A proposal for a “National Mechanism” to strengthen the voice of service users and carers in Wales, and how this could function
Involving All, how to ensure that service users and carers can be heard irrespective of their age, gender, ethnicity, experience of illness and location

Our aim is to have around 12 people, including service users, carers and workers promoting involvement, at each Focus Group so places are limited. The Focus Groups will meet for around two hours, with coffee, tea and biscuits on arrival. The specific start times for morning and afternoon groups are indicated on the booking form which follows on the next page.

Final details, including the venue, will be sent to those attending before their Focus Group. There is no charge for attending the Focus Groups and we are able to pay reasonable expenses and costs incurred by service users and carers who are unwaged.

For further information, please telephone Steven John at Mind Cymru (02920 346578), or Phil Thomas or Karl Meyers at Hafal (01792 816600).
