Mental Health Network Inaugural Meeting
Mental Health Network – Inaugural meeting taking place Autumn 2017
With the publication of the five year strategy for Mental Health earlier this year – ‘The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health’ – NPAG feels that the time is right to establish a new national group to focus on this hugely important area. The intention would be to not only run this group for the duration of the strategy period but also beyond.
Whilst the mental health agenda cuts across many sectors and covers many areas, NPAG wants to focus this new group towards NHS professionals both on the commissioning side and on the provider side.
NPAG envisages that the membership of this group will be quite broad so the target audience would include any manager with a mental health responsibility whether this be in Clinical Commissioning Groups, in NHS England or in NHS mental health trusts.
