WWAMH supports and facilitates a number of service user led networks across the Three Counties. WWAMH also facilitates the recruitment of a number of service user and carer representatives for the various planning and service development groups.
We also organise and facilitated the Three Counties Mental Health Carers Network. This meets every three months and is for carers of people with mental health problems. It helps the voice of carers to be held in service planning and improvement.
We currently support 7 service user and carer representatives on the regional and national mental health Partnership Boards from across the West Wales area This is the multi agency Board which plans mental health services and strategy for West Wales. We also support a number of representatives on other groups such as the Mental Health Act Monitoring Committee.
