No decision about us without us

A guide for people who use mental health services, carers and the public, to accompany the implementation framework for the mental health strategy.

The Framework for ‘No health without mental health’ sets out recommendations for local bodies with a role to play in delivering mental health services and support. This guide is a companion document, and sets out ideas for how people, community groups and local voluntary organisations can use the Framework to secure the best mental health services possible.

This guide aims to:

  • Introduce you to the mental health strategy, ‘No health without mental health’ and the Framework for making this a reality;
  • Set out which people and organisations make decisions about local mental health services;
  • Provide information about the formal opportunities for getting involved in planning and improving mental health services across England;
  • Outline how you might influence local decisions about mental health services or campaign for change;
  • Signpost you to sources of information about getting involved;
  • Provide practical examples of influencing and involvement from people with mental health problems, and carers.
