IMHN are running a mental health forum in Wigan & Leigh, that is open to anyone with lived experience in Wigan or Leigh, to discuss the key issues that surround mental health. This is a chance for you to have your say on how mental health services are being run, and what you believe should be priority areas of focus. We work with the Health & Social Care Partnership and send feedback to them directly, to influence future mental health support. You can join the next forum via Zoom, on Thursday 11th November 5:30pm, by pressing the image below:
