Mental Health Network

Picture of teamwork

Mental Health is important to all of us and is recognised as a district priority within our North WestLeicestershire Community Health and Wellbeing Plan. 

We have created a Mental Health Network; a team of partners and organisations with the shared drive to come together to support North West Leicestershire's Mental Health. 

For more information and to show interest in being part of the mental health network, get in contact with us at
