The Suffolk VASP (Voluntary and Statutory Partnership) for Mental Health is a local network for anyone with an interest in mental health.
VASP meetings take place across Suffolk to enable local organisations across the voluntary and statutory sectors to:
Identify gaps in services
Raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing services across Suffolk
First set up nearly 15 years ago, the network is recognised by many as a reliable voice for service providers, government bodies, charitable organisations, practitioners, carers and users of mental health related services alike.
The VASP is not a charity or a constituted body and, while it receives no direct funding, it is greatly supported and sustained by the large number of individuals and organisations committed to the benefits of working in partnership.
As a collective, the VASP continues to make a significant difference to mental health services across Suffolk through improved communication and pooled resources.
The VASP is an open forum – anyone with an interest in mental health is welcome to get involved, with meetings regularly taking place in several locations across Suffolk.
