Mental Health Liaison Service

The Mental Health Liaison Service is commissioned by Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group.  It provides specialist infrastructure support to the mental health voluntary and community sector in the following ways:

  • Provides a platform for voluntary agencies delivering mental health services to come together to discuss matters of common interest and influence strategic planning in mental health;
  • Represents voluntary sector mental health providers on strategic commissioning and other key multi-agency planning groups and review bodies;
  • Trains and supports other voluntary sector representatives.

Derbyshire Mental Health Community Groups Network

These meetings are for smaller organisations with no, or few, paid staff. Small groups have different issues to larger organisations and these meetings offer a space to support each other and share ideas.

Voluntary Sector Mental Health Network (VSMHN)

VSMHN is a sub-group of Derbyshire Voluntary Action and holds bi-monthly meetings. It is open to any organisation delivering mental health services as part or all of their work. VSMHN is the mechanism whereby views are gathered to inform representation at a strategic level and to feedback.

Joint Countywide Mental Health Forum

The Joint Countywide Mental Health Forums are held twice a year in partnership with our colleagues in the South of the County, Derbyshire Mental Health Forum. The Forum provides an opportunity to hear from local mental health commissioners and other relevant speakers.
