There are just a few days left to be considered for a place on the region’s Mental Health Commission’s Citizens’ Jury, with applications closing on 4 March.
The Commission has been established by the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) to understand the impact poor mental health and wellbeing has on public services.
The Jury will consist of 20 local people who have experienced mental health issues and who are willing to share their thoughts and opinions over the course of eight sessions. The first four sessions will be held in March and the last four will be in May.
In recognition of the time spent as part of the Citizens’ Jury, all participants will receive £20 worth of gift vouchers for each session. Ideally the Jury will include people who have not taken part in any kind of consultation type activity before.
Applicants must be aged 16 years of age or over and can fill in the short form online at www.westmidlandscombinedauthority.org.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively it can be completed it over the phone by calling Ajaib S. Paul (AJ) on 01384 814410.
