What is Different Voices User Involvement?
Different Voices is an inpatient mental health user involvement initiative at The Advocacy Project.
Our aim is to help people who use mental health services in Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea to be involved in influencing and improving services.
Want to have your say about hospital mental health services?
You can get involved in the following ways:
· Patients’ Forums and focus groups on the wards
· Service user reps at hospital management meetings
· Speakeasy Magazine
· Meetings, consultations and events
· NHS Recruitment panels
· Different Voices Group in the community
We recognise that not all people wish to participate in group work or meetings. You can also be involved on a one-to-one basis to make sure your views are heard.
You can be involved in a way that suits you – you could be a short-term participant or a regular member. The project is flexible so that you can participate according to your ability, interest and availability.
Who can participate in Different Voices?
Our project is for people who have used inpatient mental health services in Westminster or Kensington & Chelsea and want to have a say and improve these services.
