St Helens Mental Health Forum
St Helens Mental Health Forum meets on a monthly basis and is a group attended by service users and professionals of other Mental Health service providers in St Helens. The group’s main aim (through partnership and collaboration) is to improve the wellbeing of people in St Helens who are directly affected by mental health problems (this includes patients and their friends, family and carers) and actively involve people in decision making.
- The monthly meeting is an opportunity to present and discuss the latest news affecting mental health services in St Helens, and there is usually a guest speaker to talk to the group. Meetings are friendly and relaxed and there is no obligation to come along to every meeting.
- There is also a fortnightly peer support network which is a more informal meeting to socialise and support others. The group decides projects to work on, and past projects have included gardening and healthy eating schemes.
How to Access
The monthly meeting is held on the third Tuesday of every month from 1pm to 3pm at the United Reformed Church on King Street. The peer support network is held every alternate Thursday from 10am to 12pm, also at the United Reformed Church.
