Further information about our organisation

IMHN exists to represent those with lived experience of mental health, uniting voices for positive change in how mental health services are delivered.

We’re governed by a board of up to twelve Trustees, who work alongside our branches and volunteers to develop a thriving and active organisation improving mental health services and empowering those with lived experience to have their voice heard.

The charity is young and working to embed its first strategic plan that will integrate our core objectives into everything that we do.
