What Women Want Group

The What Women Want group has been providing a platform for the views & aspirations of women service users for several years. The group’s membership brings together a wide range of organisations & women service users in order to give a strategic lead on improving mental health services for women. Evidence from the group’s engagement events confirm the remit of the group to address mental health issues within the context of general wellbeing for women, & to reinforce the message from women service users of the need for women-only services. The group identifies 2-3 Task & Finish Group topics each year in order to focus on identified issues & increase service user & provider involvement.
