What are the benefits of membership?

We are the only national body that includes mental health organisations from statutory, independent and third sectors.

Our members set the agenda for our work; their values, influence and ownership give us true credibility in the eyes of partners, policy makers and politicians.

The MHN debates

The Mental Health Network leads the national debate on mental health by:

  • Influencing policy and legislation on mental health.
  • Interpret the broader political and policy environment
  • Championing good practice and innovation in the mental health sector.
