Get involved in improving Neami services
We know that the knowledge gained from our life journey is incredibly valuable for creating positive change. This knowledge, known as ‘lived experience,’ is important when it comes to making real improvements.
At Neami, we recognise that we only know a part of the story necessary to offer excellent services and improve the mental health system. This is why we encourage you to take part in activities where you can share your experience or partner with us in decisions that directly impact your life.
We believe that by collaborating, we can contribute to a better, fairer, and kinder world.
