About the Carers Forum

The Carers Forum meets quarterly and provides carers with an opportunity to come together and share their experiences and to look at information about current changes and developments within mental health. As a group the forum identifies and agrees the agenda for future meetings, including inviting input from guest speakers and organising workshops.
