KS2 Bath carers group, working in collaboration with St Mungo’s, held their third ‘What’s Going On’ event on Wed 17th Nov 2021 at the Salvation Army, central Bath. The event was funded by Healthwatch BANES Community Pot.
Event aim: To create an opportunity for anyone affected by mental health issues to talk directly with mental health service providers and commissioners to find out about and discuss what’s going on in the Bath and North East Somerset (BANES) area.
Prior to the event, KS2 Bath and St Mungo's listened to 91 local people, who shared their personal views, experiences and ideas on accessing mental health and wellbeing services in BANES. The experiences of service users and carers were captured via a survey (paper-based and online format) and 6 focus groups. This feedback was then used to inform the event and the themes for discussion.
The report is now available.
