Lived Experience Network

Join our Lived Experience Network for people with experience of mental health issues


Join HIVE Portsmouth’s Lived Experience Network

HIVE Portsmouth has created a Lived Experience Network which offers people with experience of mental health issues, and their carers, an opportunity to help transform mental health services.

The network makes sure that everyone’s voice is heard and allows people to get involved in a way that suits them. For example, some people choose to regularly get involved in meetings and discussions, while others give their feedback via email or at community events.

There are lots of different ways you can get involved, such as:

  • Taking part in workshops
  • Taking part in discussions
  • Sharing your thoughts on our ideas and suggestions

We’re really keen to hear from young people as we want to make sure people of all ages have a good experience when they need mental health support.

If you’d like to find out more about the Improving Mental Health project, or join the mental health Lived Experience Network, HIVE Portsmouth would love to hear from you. Please call 023 9261 6709 or email HIVE Portsmouth.
