Get Involved

How can you get involved in planning and developing mental health services in Lanarkshire?

Become a member of Lanarkshire Links (membership is free and you’ll get a free copy of our monthly information sheet and our quarterly magazine Mental Health Matters).

Meet with other service users and carers at our quarterly members meetings.

Attend a local mental health issues group to meet with others in your area that have an interest in developing services.

Go along with an existing member to one of the many different committee meetings, groups or events to listen and learn more about involvement without making any commitment.

Choose from our information sheet which events or meetings you would like to participate in.

Take advantage of the training and support we can provide.

Reasonable travel expenses are usually paid and if you have other expenses e.g. replacement care costs, child care provision etc. we can negotiate support.

We need your input to ensure that the best services are provided. You can help modernise adult mental health services in Lanarkshire. We are here to support and empower you to communicate your views and identify how existing services can be more responsive to the needs of service users and their carers.

If at present you do not  feel able to be actively involved then tell us about your concerns and we will ensure they are heard within the planning process.
