Who is involved in the WMHN?
The Network will bring together organisations working in women’s mental health and related areas including: criminal justice, mental health, violence and abuse, homelessness, drugs and alcohol, trafficked women, street workers; and diversity including: LGBT; learning disability; ethnicity and age in order to achieve more through joint campaigning.
By uniting organisations from across the sector we can create a strong body that represents an inclusive and diverse group of women.
