The forum unites people from a wide range of backgrounds

To be effective, it is important that the Forum membership represents the diversity of our country and includes a strong voice for people who experience a range of disadvantages. We are therefore looking for people with personal experience of mental health services who will enhance the makeup of the Forum in a number of ways. In particular we are looking to increase diversity by inviting individuals with lives experience and carers or those who provide support, from the following backgrounds: 

  • Members of Black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups 
  • People with experience of specialist services e.g. Forensic Psychiatry, Eating Disorder Services, Neuropsychiatry, Personality Disorder Services 
  • Members of the LGBTQA+ community 
  • People who have experience of homelessness 
  • Prisoners and those with experience of the Judiciary System 
  • People living with physical or sensory impairment or disability 
  • Members of the Gypsy/Traveller community 
  • People with experience of seeking asylum in Wales 
  • Older People 
  • Young people experiencing transition to adult mental health services 
  • Expectant parents or parents of a young child / children 
  • Veterans  
  • People from minority religious / faith groups 
  • Others who feel excluded e.g. financially or digitally 

Other ways to become involved.
