The Mental Health Network of the NHS Confederation is the voice for NHS funded mental health and learning disability service providers in England. 

We represent NHS providers from across the statutory, independent and third sectors in working with government, regulators, opinion formers, media and the wider NHS to promote excellence in mental health services and the importance of good mental health.
