The Way Ahead is service user roadshows

As part of our collaborative commitment to shape the best mental healthcare for our communities, we held a programme of service user and carer roadshows, across the city of Manchester during November and December 2016.  These roadshows gave people who use services, or care for someone with mental health or drug and alcohol problems, an opportunity to help shape the WAY AHEAD.
