Thanks for checking out my blog post on mental health updates, reviews and summaries. Even though I am a carer from Lewisham, I am involved in the Mental Health Trust that provides services in South / South East London, although I do admit I sometimes wander away from South London and sometimes head to other boroughs.
As usual I tend to visit the borough of Croydon to get updates and also raise questions concerning mental health services in that area. I took the time to review Hear Us (Mental Health Service User Project) open forum.
The forums are always well attended and packed full with updates, guest speakers and sometimes workshops and focus groups.
The July’s Forum centred on the the Psychiatric Liaison Service presented by Joseph from the Croydon University Hospital. We also had South London and Maudsley Pharmacist Georgina Boon presenting on medication. Plus introductions on service updates from Imagine, which is located at Mind in Croydon and updates from support workers supporting ex-offenders suffering mental health and physical problems.
Feel free to watch the video I made about July’s Forum.
It is a shame I cannot visit the forums as much as I used to since I guess I am getting very busy with other projects I am involved in. If I can manage to attend more, I hope to blog them although I cannot always promise a video blog.
