Mental Health Sector Connector Forum 8 July 2020

‘Sector Connector’ is a Sussex wide collaboration between Healthwatch, the Voluntary and Community Sector and the NHS.

What is Mental Health Sector Connector?

We have been asked to arrange and facilitate ‘Forums’ which will meet three to four times a year and provide a way for the Voluntary and Community Sector, expertise from people with lived experience and the private sector to influence and engage with NHS Mental Health strategic planning, Clinical Commissioning Group on a Sussex-wide basis.
