The Mental Health Providers Forum
The MHPF – the Mental Health Providers Forum is the representative body for voluntary sector mental health provider organisations operating across England. The aim of the MHPF is to improve the range and quality of mental health services by working to increase the involvement of the voluntary and community sectors in service delivery.
The Mental Health Providers Forum’s Mindful Forum is an interactive website for providers and users of mental health services. It’s a platform which aims to engage directly with all mental health stakeholders to generate discussion as well as promoting and profiling new ideas for practical improvement to services across the mental health sector.
Imagine's staff and service users can access the forum by clicking on the link below - or via the Service User tabs.
The MHPF is also active in promoting the Lightbox campaign which focuses on the ability and contribution of voluntary sector organisations to support and deliver a broad range of mental health services.
Lightbox provides information to commissioners and GP Leads that will support them to meet the needs of their local population, ensuring that when it comes to mental health services, those in leadership roles are properly informed to commission services that make a difference.
You can watch a video about the campaign and get involved at: www.lightbox-mhpf.org.uk
