The new Waveney LEAF (Lived Experience Advisory Forum) has been set up by Access Community Trust to give users of mental health services across Waveney, and their families, a platform to share their voices and lived experience.
We recognise the importance of peoples stories and experiences, and will provide a safe, supportive environment to capture their voices, offer support, signposting, information and guidance.
We will collaborate with communities across Waveney to understand what matters to them, and use innovative ways to bring those with lived experience and their supportive others together, with a united voice, to inform and influence services of the future.
The new service will launch in August 2020 and we want to develop the service with those who have lived experience of mental health challenges.
