Service users train to engage with and influence Parliament

On June 15th a group of Mind in Harrow service users and staff attended a fantastic interactive training session about engaging with Parliament and influencing legislation. The session was run by Alasdair Mackenzie, the UK Parliament's Senior Outreach and Engagement Officer, and held at Portcullis House, next to the House of Commons.

As a result of this session, Mind in Harrow service users will be working more closely with Parliament in future to ensure mental health is a priority. Watch this space!

If you would like to get involved, contact Raksha Pandya (User Involvement Co-ordinator) on 020 8515 7868 or email r.pandya@mindinharrow.org.uk.
