VOCAL Edinburgh’s mental health carers project: consultations

19 August 2021

VOCAL Edinburgh’s five year mental health carer project will encourage and support carers and mental health professionals to work together, to shape carer involvement in Edinburgh’s mental health services for the future. 

If the person you care for uses mental health services in Edinburgh, VOCAL would like to invite you to take part in one or more of the consultation activities outlined below.

Whichever consultation activity you take part in, anything you share with VOCAL will be used anonymously, along with the results of our carer survey, to help us support and encourage mental health services to develop or improve their carer involvement practice.
