Help shape the delivery of the Community Mental Health Framework

Independent Mental Health Network (IMHN) is running five focus groups in December that each look at a different element of the NHS’ Community Mental Health Framework.

These focus groups will help directly shape what the roll-out of the Framework looks like in the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. It is important for carers to have a say.

This will be your opportunity to discuss what matters most to you around the elements listed above, to help health commissioners ensure that the new services meet people’s needs.

People who attend a focus group will receive a £25 voucher as a thank you for their contributions and time.

More about the Community Mental Health Framework

The Framework was first published in September 2019, following publication of the NHS’ Long Term Plan and the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health. The framework intends to deliver person-centred mental health care in the community, and address the needs of people that have previously struggled to access effective support.
