Our Collective Voice

There are three main areas of member involvement:

Legislation and Policy

At all levels legislation and policy documents call for the need for members to be involved in the planning, the delivery of services and in receiving care.

Stakeholder Involvement

Members are the main reason for the existence of services and, as such, are the people who will be most affected by any changes to the care that they receive. It is therefore very important that they have a say in what happens to services.


Through their experiences of life with a mental health problem members gain an experience of services (and gaps in services) and care that cannot be found elsewhere. This experience is vital in the development of appropriate services.
