Chief Executive, Birmingham Mind Chair of BSol VCFSE Mental Health Collaborative and Panel

I pay tribute to ANHH for all their support to us over the last year. 

We would never have achieved what we have achieved without them. 

They have worked really hard to ensure that the VCFSE is formally represented, and
actively supported the sector to organise itself, helping deliver Terms of Reference and providing some really helpful training. It is truly a sea-change in how decisions
and oversight of mental health services are made.
