What Women Want

Synopsis
It is widely recognised that women’s mental health needs are different from men’s. The National Women’s Mental Health strategy, launched in winter 2002, is bringing big changes to service providers and aims to put female services users at the centre of service delivery by listening to their voices. This video and accompanying training pack are designed to help stimulate debate about services for women. It features stories from female service users and gives an insight into issues such as sexual abuse, self-harm and motherhood. It highlights examples of best practice in mental health services - and the positive results. It provides an opportunity to hear direct from women
with mental health needs about what has helped them and harmed them. It will help organisations review their policies and practice and act as a tool for training staff and for discussion of the National Women’s Mental Health Strategy.
