Proposed new Mental Health and Wellbeing Network

Date(s) - 25 April 2018
12:00pm - 2:00pm

Chain Lane Community Hub
North Yorkshire

Voluntary and community organisations in the Harrogate and rural district, with a role in provision of services relating to mental health and wellbeing of Harrogate District, are invited to attend an initial meeting to explore establishing a local Mental Health and Wellbeing network.

A meeting will be held on Wednesday 25 April 2018 at Chain Lane Community Hub Knaresborough from 12 to 2 pm for community and voluntary organisations. It is proposed that a group be created for networking on issues around mental health and wellbeing within Harrogate and the wider Harrogate District.

Including those organisations who contribute to improving mental health and wellbeing, and issues around housing, transport, inclusion, education, employment, physical and emotional health and staying safe which all contribute to good mental health.

This initiative has come about as people have expressed regret at a current lack of opportunity to regularly come together as community providers and charities to discuss issues of the day, how organisations can benefit from collaborative working, sharing working models, learning from each other, influencing and staying up-to-date on mental health and wellbeing provision within Harrogate District.

Only a minority of people who experience mental health and wellbeing issues are in receipt of specialist mental health services; many others in the community rely on support services provided by a wide range of community and voluntary services.

There has been a positive response to the proposed new network.

Likeminded organisations are invited to join the initial meeting to discuss how you and your organisation can benefit from opportunities to meet to share news, information, good practise, highlight any gaps in services and to have a collective voice to connect with and influence local statutory services, and support each other’s work.

Participants will discuss the purpose and role of a MH+WB Network, aims, goals and outcomes.
