Viewpoint is a user involvement charity in Hertfordshire for people with mental health or drug and alcohol problems.
It is essential that the people who use or who have used mental health or drug and alcohol services are enabled to help make positive changes to them.
The experience and expertise which can be gained can help commissioners and providers to make the biggest difference in peoples’ lives.
Viewpoint achieves this in a variety of ways including:
• Service user representation
• Local forums and meetings
• Specialist workshops
• Surveys and online media
We provide support to our members to use their experience in the most positive way, drawing on their abilities to ensure we are user led.
We hold local forums and meetings to take service user views and suggestions to mental health service providers.
Meetings take place regularly, in locations across Hertfordshire and give you a chance to meet with other people with similar experiences so that you can discuss your views and ideas about the services you receive.
Meetings are supported by a project worker or service user representative and we can help with travel costs to enable you to attend.
