The Mental Health Network (MHN) is currently seeking nominations to its board for a Chair representative from a Mental Health NHS Trust or Foundation Trust.

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.
