Healthwatch Staffordshire Online Forum for Mental Health
Fri 2 Oct 2015
Healthwatch Staffordshire have set up an online forum for the public to discuss mental health: http://healthwatchstaffordshire.co.uk/forum/
This an opportunity to make your voice heard and give your opinion on mental health in Staffordshire.
To take part in the discussion, you will firstly need to register on the webpage above by entering a username and your email address. You can make up any username you like as long as it isn’t already taken, so if you would like to remain anonymous you can do so.
They have 6 topics and each one will run for 2 weeks, starting with ‘stigma and discrimination’. They have posted three stigma-related questions to get the ball rolling so once you’re registered and logged in, you can leave replies on the question posts or even post a question of your own.
The online discussions are designed to gather feedback from the public, including their own experiences of mental health, to inform Staffordshire County Council on how they can best implement the new mental health strategy. Staffordshire County Council’s mental health strategy can be found here.
