What is the Independent Mental Health Network?

The Independent Mental Health Network (IMHN) is a membership-led organisation that represents a diverse community of past, current and future users of mental health services, as well as those with lived experience of mental health.

By working together, we believe that we can be a force for positive change in the way that mental health is treated, perceived, and recognised.
