North East together (NEt) NEt is the network for people with lived experience of mental health conditions living in the North East of England. Expand The Network provides the opportunity to meet for support, to exchange information and come together to influence what happens in mental health services. Regional Coordinator, Mish Lorraine, together with Chair, Catherine Haigh and Treasurer, Sharon Gibson have been working extremely hard to look at the future sustainability of North East together. Two very successful working groups have been established. The News Group have produced a flyer, the first edition of the NEt Newsletter, a facebook page, twitter account @NorthEtogether and a website is in progress. The Welfare Reform Action Group has created a Mental Health Manifesto, which will be distributed to user and carer groups across the region for sign up. Further work is generated through regular monthly meetings.
