Further Information

IMHN exists to represent those with lived experience of mental health, uniting voices for positive change in how mental health services are delivered.

We’re governed by a board of up to twelve Trustees, who work alongside our branches and volunteers to develop a thriving and active organisation improving mental health services and empowering those with lived experience to have their voice heard.

The charity is young and working to develop its first strategic plan that will embed our core objectives into everything that we do. It’s an exciting time for us, having just hosted Peerfest 2017 in Bristol with local partners after competing in a national tendering exercise and taken part in several ward visits and service redesign exercises including Bristol’s mental health crisis houses.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take on an essential role in a developing and growing charity committed to changing lives and we look forward to receiving your application.
