Open Space Listening Event

The West Midlands Combined Authority is committed to seeking the views and opinions of all involved in the mental health system. It is doing this firstly through a Citizens Jury for service users and carers (which has now started its work), secondly via online submissions and thirdly through a series of three Open Space Listening events.

You are invited to join one of the listening events, to be held on:

Tuesday 26 April – Coventry Central Hall: 13:30-17:00

Friday 29 April – Dudley Town hall, Main Hall: 13:30-17:00

Tuesday 3 May – Birmingham BVSC, Rooms 4/5/6: 13:30-17:00

Each event will host up to eighty people and will be an attempt to bring together the main stakeholders to try and answer the questions:

1. What do the members of the West Midlands Mental Health Commission need to hear?

2. How can public services be transformed within current spending limits to build wellbeing, keep people mentally well and reduce the impact that poor mental health and wellbeing have on public services, the economy and communities in the West Midlands?
