Oxford Mental Health Forum is a web resource aimed primarily at people living in Oxfordshire affected by mental illness and those who have an interest in mental health.
The website provides patients/service users, carers, family and friends of sufferers, academics/researchers, mental health professionals, and others affected by mental illness with access to a range of online material on mental health, including news stories, articles, and information on local services and research studies. One of the aims of the forum is to also allow discussion and input for the sharing of knowledge, experiences, ideas, and views, to help inform future research and service provision. The site also contains links to a range of external resources.
Oxford Mental Health Forum is independent; it is not part of any other organisation and works collaboratively with others. Find out more >>
