DescriptionVoicing Views is a forum where mental health service users can have their say and help shape how services are delivered and developed in Wandsworth. Anyone who uses mental health services either in primary or secondary care in Wandsworth can join the group. There are no fees involved.

The project works along with service users and the Mental Health Trust, the Clinical Reference Group (formally the Primary Care Trust) and Wandsworth Council on matters relating to the delivery and development of mental health services. It is based in Tooting and is part of Wandsworth Care Alliance.

Service user members of Voicing Views sit on most of the major groups and forums that take place and attend meetings about the delivery and development of services. Members also get involved in one-off consultations and focus groups with the Mental Health Trust, Clinical Reference Group and the council.

Voicing Views currently runs monthly service user groups either in Earlsfield or Putney on the last Thursday of each month between 2pm and 3.30pm. On a bi-monthly basis the project hosts the Mental Health Interest Group which is open to service users, carers and staff. Get in contact with the Voicing Views project manager for details as the dates for this meeting vary.

Voicing Views is not a therapy or support group or an advocacy service. However, it can steer people in the right direction for those services.
