All-Party Group on Mental Health

MindWise are the Secretariat for the All-Party Group on Mental Health which meets to consider mental health.

MindWise are the Secretariat of the All-Party Group on Mental Health.

The All-Party Group on Mental Health brings together members of the Northern Ireland Assembly from different political parties, along with external mental health organisations and experts, in order to have an open forum to consider mental health issues. Together, we help to shape the agenda and our discussions with the Group often lead to projects that go on to inform policy. Anyone is welcome to attend because mental health and wellbeing is everyone's business.

We hold regular meetings. Catch up on our most recent meetings on our blog. 

If you'd like to be kept up-to-date on future meetings, or have something you'd like to bring to the meeting for discussion, email Caroline Devlin to be added to our mailing list.
