National Mental Health Forum (Wales)

Wales’s voice for those with lived experience and carers. 

The National Mental Health Forum provides a strong and diverse voice for people with experience of mental health service and carers across Wales. The Forum brings together the local and national partnership board members, their deputies, and a further ten members recruited nationally to ensure that it reflects the diversity of the people of Wales and the range of their mental health needs. 

Since its launch in 2013 the Forum is becoming an increasingly powerful voice for service users and carers, and is starting to influence the shape of mental health policy and services, sharing information and experiences across Wales and spreading good practice. 

The Forum is funded through Section 64 funding from Welsh Government and meets three times per year.
