Mental Health Partnership Board

The Mental Health Partnership Board aim to influence developments in the city which will make a difference to people with mental health problems and their family or carers.

Its membership includes people with mental health problems and family carers, as well as a range of statutory, independent and voluntary sector agencies, including the police, the NHS and ourselves. The board is not an open forum and operates a membership list to ensure that there is the right balance of stakeholders.

The board meets quarterly, and is chaired by service user co-chairs Tania Shah and Grant Paton. The Board is attended by Cllr Vi Dempster, Assistant City Mayor with responsibility for health. 

The lead officer for the board is Ben Smith. For any queries about the board you can email
