Invitation: March for Mental Health: planning meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday 18th April at the Georgian Town House, Norwich NR2 2RB

Share

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. on Tuesday 18th April 2017 at the Georgian Town House, 30-34 Unthank Rd, Norwich NR2 2RB. There is a map below. There is free parking in the grounds of the hotel. Please come along and find out more about our campaign and the crisis in mental health services.

This will be our final meeting before our March for Mental Health on 30th April 2017 leaving at 11 a.m. from the Norwich City Hall steps. We have distributed nearly 2,000 flyers and are getting more printed and we need help to distribute them and marshals to keep people safe on the day. If you felt inspired by the recent Panorama to join our fight for decent mental health services, why not help us with the March for Mental Health? Last year, over five hundred people marched to demand better mental health services and service users, carers, the bereaved and NHS staff told us that they were comforted and uplifted by the presence of so many people who cared. If you can’t get to the meeting but would like to help, do please get in touch.

You don’t have to be a committee member or a helper to come along, just a campaign supporter. Do please join us if you would like to help us, whether you are a service user, a carer, a member of staff, or a concerned member of the public. It would be very nice to meet you.

If you feel you would like to chat with or meet a campaign member informally before attending a meeting, please get in touch – people who feel anxious about new situations or the bereaved have found this particularly useful in the past. We will do all we can to support and include you.

      It is our regular monthly meeting for those who want to get more involved or have something to say, delayed for one week because of the anniversary public meeting.

    As well as planning activities we get valuable feedback from people regarding their experience of our local mental health services. NSFT have also changed their minds about meeting with us; we have a meeting planned with Jane Sayer, NSFT’s Director of Nursing, possibly on 19th April to discuss what can be done to reduce the high number of unexpected deaths of patients under the care of NSFT. We are also getting contacts from other parts of the country who, of course, are also experiencing severe cuts to mental health services.

    Any chance that meeting minutes can be published for those unable to attend?

    I have found these meetings indispensable to know what is happening with the management of the Trust. If you read what the Trust says about itself you would think it is the best mental health trust in the country when it is almost the worst! Join the campaign to learn the truth!
