Becoming a PLUS member will enable you to vote at our AGM and give you full voting rights. You will be part of a growing movement of people with the collective aim of improving the lives of those who experience mental distress and promoting more positive attitudes to mental health in general.

Anyone living in P & K who has used mental health services and agrees with the aims and objectives of the organisation can join.
