Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation

GM VCSE Mental Health Forum (including dementia, perinatal, children and young people and adult mental health)

The GM Mental Health VCSE (Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprise) Forum, links directly with the implementation of the Greater Manchester Mental Health Strategy. The forum meetings have been designed to ensure that the fullest range of VCSE partners, involved with delivering emotional wellbeing and mental health support (including dementia support) to children, young people, adults and families across Greater Manchester have a chance to understand, influence and implement the strategy. Also, to ensure inclusion, transparency and accountability across and within the VCSE sector.

The next meeting of the GM Mental Health Forum is being held on Tuesday 14th May 2019 at the St Thomas Centre, Manchester, M12 6FZ from 10.00 - 13.00 (Registration from 9.30am).

The primary focus of this Forum will be upon influencing mental health commissioning in GM. Marie Graham from GMCVO will deliver a workshop that will form part of a wider “listening” exercise being undertaken by VCSE organisations and commissioners to inform the development of a Greater Manchester Health and Care VCSE commissioning framework. Delegates will also recieve a customary update on the GM Mental Health Strategy from the GM Health and Social Care Partnership and have the opportunity to attend 'surgeries'  to speak to the individuals who represent the GM VCSE sector on various boards related to mental health to receive updates on latest developments and to pose any questions/raise any issues you may have
