Earlier this summer, we launched our Women’s Mental Health Network in style, with an event all about the power of female voices, and turning the volume up on those voices that are so often ignored.
We had performances from comedian Jessie Cave, singer Misha B and poet Charly Cox, making it a celebratory evening about people coming together to campaign for change in the mental health system.
And we want to continue to turn up the volume on women’s mental health, but we need your help.
We recently launched our consultation that’s asking you to identify the top three issue within service provision that need to change, and we will then be developing user-led campaigns to improve these issues.
This will be done to drive forward the provision of gender-specific statutory services; and then we will take these campaigns forward at a national level.
This consultation stage is vital as, with Wish being a user-led organisation, we want your voices to be at the heart of our work; and we are hoping to reach 5000 women with this consultation, getting as many voices heard as possible.
This consultation closes on the 1st of October.
If you have had experience of the mental health system, please take the survey by clicking the button below:
It is available both online and as a hard copy. If you need it sent to you in a different format or language, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also share the consultation far and wide, as this needs to be a cross-sector effort so we can make a real change in the services women use.
We look forward to you joining us as we #TurnUpTheVolume on women’s mental health!
