Pathways To Policy

This toolkit enables NGOs and user groups to promote the voice of service users in the development of mental health policy. Drawing on the experiences of a 5-year programme, the toolkit provides a framework for establishing a mental health policy 'forum' to enable people experiencing mental distress to have a genuine voice in policy-making. It provides a step-by-step guide to user groups to working in partnership with other stakeholders to prioritise local mental health issues, develop action plans and raise awareness.
