Voluntary Sector Assembly - A Meeting of Minds

 Registration is closed for this event
This event will examine current mental health service provision in Manchester and the role of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector as a service and information provider, a supporter of people and community, and an employer of staff and volunteers.

The Mental Health Foundation estimated that 1 in 6 people in the past week experienced a common mental health problem. There is still a taboo about discussing mental health and it can be hard for people to get the help they need in the places they need it. Over the last few years, there has been an increased demand for mental health services and support. The voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector has a vital role in both mental health service provision and also wider support that enables people in the community to keep well. Amongst other factors, the growth of social prescribing has brought this role to the fore.

This Voluntary Sector Assembly will look at current mental health service provision across Manchester and examine the VCSE role with case studies from a range of organisations looking at different ways of delivering mental health services in the community and workplaces. Also, there will be a range of participative workshops looking at how we can lead the way in addressing these issues. Please join us for what should be an interesting afternoon of discussion and information sharing.
