We represent your views to Scotland’s politicians and health professionals to ensure our laws and mental health services reflect your needs and interests. If you have a lived experience of mental illness, join VOX to start shaping the mental health agenda. VOX is run by people with mental health issues for people with mental health issues. We are the ‘voice of experience’ and make sure our members’ views are heard – loud and clear!!
We focus on the issues that matter to our members. We helped to shape the 2015 Mental Health Act and represented our members’ views on the subject of smoking in hospital grounds. We undertake research and provide training to make sure our members’ views are heard loud and clear! We are open and transparent and share our work with a national audience. Join VOX to start shaping our priorities today.
Scotland’s national mental health service user organisation, VOX Scotland, has released a new animation amplifying the voices of those with lived experience of mental ill-health during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Volunteers from Jean’s Bothy in Helensburgh shared their experiences of isolation, being unable to access the right support, and feeling overwhelmed by the impact of the pandemic.
Voices of Experience (VOX) is Scotland’s mental health collective advocacy charity, run by and for its members.
“I’m passionate about VOX and what we stand for. VOX listens to what its members want, it prioritises what its members want and it follows through on these priorities. VOX turns principles into actions – it ticks all the boxes for me.” – VOX Member
