National Network for Mental Health releases 2011 strategic plan
The National Network for Mental Health (NNMH), a national, non-diagnostic consumer/survivor-driven mental health organization, has released its 2011 strategic plan. The document details the feedback received by NNMH from a pre-planning survey. The survey identified the need to strengthen the original mandate of the NNMH and forge a new role in the context of larger mental health strategies that are weakening the voice of consumers in directing mental health services. The overall strategic direction outlined in the plan is to: build a sustainable, responsive and accountable, member-driven organization; deliver a strong, unified and credible national consumer voice; and strengthen NNMH’s influence by working with key organizations.
