You may be a Carer, Family or Friend of someone with a Mental Health problem, or just someone who is supportive of our work. You are eligible to become a member if you are over 18 years of age.
There are no fees, nor requirements on you to attend meetings or get involved in any way unless you wish to do so, in which case your help would be greatly valued.
You would have access to regular information, including reports from the Management Committee who, representing the Forum, attend meetings with Health & Social Care Professionals to put Carers' views forward. You will also receive newsletters containing matters of interest to you as a Carer.
From time to time, we may invite your views on matters affecting you or the one you care for. You would be under no obligation to respond though we know that, while some may find it difficult to attend meetings, they would like the opportunity to make their views known.
Any participation would be treated in the strictest confidence unless you give permission otherwise.
