Communities for Holistic Accessible Rights based Mental Health
We are a campaign calling for changes in the way psychiatric services are provided in Greater Manchester.
We’ve teamed up with people with lived experience, workers, trade unions, family groups and citizens
We are calling for a root and branch review and an action plan to transform mental health services in our communities.

Co-design Collaboratives for “Living Well” update
On the 22nd April we were notified that “the senior leaders who sit ‘above’ the Collaboratives, which includes CCG and MCC commissioners, GMMH leads, and various VCSE CEOs, notably of MIND, MACC and 42nd St. held a meeting and decided that further work at their level is necessary (essentially to develop their vision and governance arrangements, and for them to further understand what the data and ethnographic research is telling them) so that they can support, assist and shape the work on which we are about to embark and have directed the Operational Managers to pause the Collaborative meetings in Central, North and South Manchester.”
