Somerset Mental Health Provider Forum

Third sector mental health organisations are invited to the Somerset Mental Health Provider Forum, which is being held in celebration of Time To Talk Day.

The aim of the forum is to share updates and information between Somerset County Council and the providers of Mental Health support services in Somerset. The forum will cover an update on the work that has been undertaken recently around the Dementia Day Services transformation project, as well as asking providers what priorities commissioners should be considering for people with Mental Health support needs going into 2019. There will also be the opportunity for organisations to network and showcase their services. This event is being held the day before Time To Talk Day and there will be a an information stand with resources for you to take away to have your own conversations.

The forum is working in Partnership with the Somerset Mental Health Hub to facilitate this event.

Wednesday 6th February from 10am to 12noon, at CICCIC in Taunton. Email for more information and to reserve a space.
