The Department of Health is currently working to develop a new, ten year Mental Health Strategy for Northern Ireland.  The new Strategy will take a person centred approach and will be co-produced.  It is intended to produce a draft Strategy for public consultation by end 2020, with a final Strategy ready by July 2021.

They are very keen to ensure the public and stakeholders are involved in this process and are kept fully informed.  They are therefore establishing a Virtual Reference Group, who they will keep up to date by issuing regular e-newsletters.

If you would like to join the Virtual Reference Group and receive these e-newsletters, please click the link below.
