Service users and carers

If we are supporting you or someone you care for it's important that you understand what's happening every step of the way, and you know about the support that's available to you.

We are committed to putting you are the heart of everything we do, and working with you to improve our services based on your experiences. 

In this section you'll find lots of useful information that explains some of the legislation related to mental health, support that's available to you and opportunities for you to get involved in.
