Our Board

Our Board is made up of individuals from across the East Midlands who bring a wealth of experience to the organisation. Board meetings take place quarterly and provide a platform from which we can get the best information from people working within the NHS about how we can improve and develop our programmes.

Board meetings take place at the Institute of Mental Health on the Nottingham University Campus.
