It is not ok to completely axe the funding of voices who may be critical of government policies. Please support LMHC.
Liverpool Mental Health Consortium is an organisation that was set up to promote mental health service user involvement in health and social care services on Merseyside. As well as giving voice to the perspectives of people with lived experience, LMHC has also recently led on an important project to document the negative impacts of austerity and welfare cuts on people experiencing mental distress in Liverpool: http://www.liverpoolmentalhealth.org/_wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Austerity-Adversity-Welfare-Reform-LMHC-May-2017-1.pdf.
Now LMHC itself is facing a complete cut in its funding from the local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group. LMHC have requested support as they lobby the Health and Wellbeing board (a joint local authority/NHS meeting) against these funding cuts at 2pm on Thursday 22nd June. The meeting takes place at the Banquet Suite, 6th Floor, Cunard Building, Water St, Liverpool L3 1ES.
Please show your support by popping along, telling your local paper or radio station, and write to your local MP.
