Mental Health EmpowermentThe Mental Health Empowerment Team is one of two projects hosted by WVSC to support Experts by Experience to get involved in the planning and decision making of Health and Social Care Services, the other project is the Drug Service User Involvement Team.

The Mental Health Empowerment Team is funded by Wolverhampton’s Mental Health Development Fund, which is jointly financed by Wolverhampton Primary Care Trust and Social Services, reporting to the Joint Commissioner for Mental Health Services.

The team is made up of the Mental Health Empowerment Co-ordinator, Self Support Co-ordinator and Administrative Resources Assistant and has developed in two areas, firstly to enable Experts by Experience to participate in the planning and influencing of mental health services and secondly, to support the development of user led self support groups.
