Why become a member?

Being a member of Hafal means that you can take part in shaping the future of mental health services locally, Wales-wide and UK-wide. For example, Hafal represents families on the Welsh Assembly Government’s Implementation Advisory Group which is advising on the Mental Health Strategy for Wales. The Welsh Assembly Government and UK Government both listen to Hafal, but more members mean more authority and more influence.

What will I get?

  • Mutual support

    Throughout Wales Hafal’s local networks offer support, practical help, and the opportunity to share experiences, make new friends and campaign on mental health issues. Membership holds the networks together and gives participants a voice in how we move forward together.

  • Practical help

    Hafal offers a wide range of services to those who experience serious mental health illness, their families and carers. See our services page to find out more.

  • Training and conference days

    Hafal offers a range of training days and conferences which are often free to members.

  • Information

    We provide a range of quality fact sheets, leaflets and booklets on a number of different subjects including the latest treatments, rights, benefits, housing issues and so on. We also keep Members informed through our Mental Health Wales journal and mailshots.

  • A voice

    Members have the chance to increase awareness of serious mental illness and raise Hafal’s profile; for example, each year we have a stand at the National Eisteddfod.
