Mental Health Network seeks nominations for new board members

mental health network logo

The Mental Health Network (MHN) is currently seeking nominations to two positions on its board: an Independent sector representative and a Third sector representative.

Representing a constituent group on the Mental Health Network board is an opportunity to shape the work of the Network and become involved in shaping mental health policy and practice on a national level.

Through this election the Mental Health Network wishes to ensure that its Board is more reflective of the population served by mental health services. We therefore welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds and gratefully receive all nominations of individuals with protected characteristics.

Terms on the Mental Health Network board last three years and the board meets four times a year. The MHN constitution including a Code of Conduct for Board Members is available to download.

Independent sector representative position

Nominees for the Independent sector representative can come from any independent sector provider organisation in Mental Health Network membership.

Further information

If more representatives than positions available put themselves forward from across membership for a position, then we will follow an election process and ballot information will be circulated to member organisations accordingly.

New board members will join the board from the Network’s 23 April board meeting at the NHS Confederation offices in London.

If a conversation to discuss further or clarify any points would be helpful, please contact Chloe.Knight@nhsconfed.org or phone 020 7799 8708.
