25 January 2022

The Mental Health Network is looking to appoint two new members to their board. They are looking for:

  1. NHS Chief Executive
  2. Nurse Director 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.

Terms on the Mental Health Network board last three years, with an option for a second three-year term to a maximum of six years. The board meets four times a year. The constitution and a Code of Conduct for Board Members is available to download.


Through this election the Mental Health Network wishes to ensure that its Board continues to be reflective of the population served by mental health services. They therefore strongly encourage nominations by candidates from BME backgrounds and gratefully receive all nominations of individuals with protected characteristics.
