The Mental Health Implementation Network (MHIN) is a nationwide NIHR-funded implementation programme that connects key multidisciplinary stakeholders across government, health services, the third sector, universities, Applied Research Collaborations, commissioners, Academic Health Science Networks, and Experts by Experience and the public, to catalyse implementation of effective mental health interventions.

Who should attend?

All mental health stakeholders, including clinical and non-clinical academics and researchers, Experts by Experience, service providers, and representatives from third-sector organisations are very welcome to join us for this online event.

What we are hoping to achieve at this event and why you should join us

In 2021, approximately 150 stakeholders were consulted as part of a rapid yet rigorous prioritisation process to identify the top broad areas of unmet mental health need which have evidence-based interventions. The MHIN consortium and its key partners have since refined these broad areas into the programme’s final four key priority areas.

One of the main aims of this event is to enable mental health stakeholders, who will be involved in and impacted by this work, the opportunity to participate in conversations and help define the programme's interventions by sharing local implementation experiences.
