Wiltshire Mental Health Open Forum

This is a fantastic service and is something I wish Dorset had too!

“Our forum offers a unique way for people to speak directly to those who run mental health services in Wiltshire.”

What is the forum?

“Our forum provides a unique opportunity for people to speak directly to those who run mental health services in Wiltshire, talking about their experiences and sharing their ideas for ways services could be improved.

It’s a collaboration between Healthwatch Wiltshire, service users and mental health service provider Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP), and is supported by a range of organisations including Wiltshire Council, Rethink, Carer Support Wiltshire and Citizens Advice. ”


What has the forum been working on?

“Our members have produced their own comprehensive guide to mental health and wellbeing services on offer in Wiltshire, as a way of helping people who are struggling with their mental health to find the right support for them quickly and easily.

The Wiltshire Mental Health and Wellbeing Support Services list details where adults, children and young people can get support, counselling, and advice on topics such as addiction, bereavement and homelessness.”
