Lambeth Mental Health Carers Forum

 

On June 22nd six carers held a planning meeting to design a mental health carers forum in Lambeth. After some insightful and constructive discussions the forum took shape and this mission statement was formed:

 

"Lambeth mental health carers’ forum is a platform for unpaid carers supporting someone with mental ill health. The forum aims to be a space for these carers to network, become more informed, to raise awareness of the issues they face and to increase the involvement of carers in service provision. The forum is there to be listened to and consulted with. Too often the experience of carers is one of being misinformed, ignored, and marginalised. The forum wants to challenge this. Ultimately the forum intends to create a more positive and engaging carer journey."


The forum will be run by carers with some assistance from Carers Hub Lambeth. Two of the carers present at the planning meeting have volunteered to chair the first meeting in July, and we will be looking for more carers to volunteer to chair future meetings or become involved with other roles.

Any questions or suggestions for the forum please contact David on
