Getting involved in mental health care
WE can all agree that people should be involved in the decisions that affect their lives. But when it comes to mental health services for people living with mental illness, a lot of people feel like they have no influence over the care and support they receive.
One in four people experience a mental health problem each year. I have been caring for someone affected by mental illness for many years and in that time I have seen good as well as not so good care from local services. I believe I have a valuable insight into what works and what doesn’t.
This is why, with the help of Rethink Mental Illness, I have contacted my Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to offer my help to make sure mental health services in Uxbridge are the best they can be. By working together, we can design better services that better meet people’s needs. This will improve the lives for everyone with mental illness. FUNMI CHIRNSIDE Uxbridge Full address supplied
