Making Southampton a Mental Health Friendly City – Stage 2 Survey
87% of people surveyed said that the most important thing in making Southampton a Mental Health Friendly City is access to support when needed. Support can take many forms including ‘services’, or support from groups, friends, family or colleagues.
We would really like to know your views on the support that would be most valuable to you and others you know. Please complete this survey.
Back in January 2020 we held two highly successful engagement days which were attended by many of SMHN’s members. Dr David Kingdon Emeritus Professor at the University of Southampton addressed the audience with a keynote speech about the importance of the Mental Health Network and what he hopes it is going to achieve.
