Women's Action for Mental Health (Nottingham) is a grassroots initiative run for working class women with mental health difficulties by women who have experienced and addressed similar issues in their own lives.
It is distinct from professionally-run mental health services in that it offers working Class women a place where they can belong and with which they can identify ; where they do not feel inferior or judged ; and where they can contribute to the management and running of the project.
The development and details of the activities of the project are presented and discussed.
