Kirklees Mental Health Carers Forum

It's an opportunity to speak directly to senior managers involved in the delivery of mental health services [in Kirklees].

What the forum has achieved so far:

Since the forum was established, many senior directors and managers have attended to speak at forum meetings. This gives carers a great opportunity to find out what the Trust (SWYPFT), Kirklees Council and Social Services are planning and to have an input into reshaping services. The forum gives you the chance to ask questions, meet fellow carers, gain their support and have some fun at the same time, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.


Departments which have accepted our feedback from a carer’s perspective and made changes to planned transformations within the Trust include:

Forum members have been invited to follow-up sessions to ensure that their points are implemented.




We are keen to create opportunities for services to hear the viewpoints of carers from all backgrounds. Please find out more here:
