User Forums

There are several local methods of achieving this. One is through the Islington Mental Health Forum (IMHF) and the other is the Islington Borough Users Group (IBUG). These are separate and independent organisations which have been active in Islington for the past 20 years.

Islington Mental Health Forum

The Islington Mental Health Forum is a group which aims to provide a support system for mental health service users and contribute effectively to the commissioning decisions of Islington Care Commissioning Group. The IMHF can be contacted at:
