Cavamh is an umbrella organisation working with voluntary sector groups with an interest in mental health and people with mental health lived experience, including service users and carers in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
We share resources and provide information and training on topics and issues around mental health. We facilitate networking and provide a platform and opportunities for service users and carers, as well as supporting peers and voluntary sector groups with an interest in mental health, or other groups in our sector.
We provide and share information through our:
- Website – includes news, events, resources and information, as well as our directories.
- Directories – Mental Health Services Directory – a directory* of services in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. Directions – a guide to older people’s mental health services and caring.
- Resources – Involvement News; Network News and Sefyll News, podcasts and videos.
* Originally published as a book in 2003, the Directory was compiled by Cardiff & Vale Mental Health Development Project (now cavamh) with funding and support from local statutory commissioners. Support has also been forthcoming from a number of agencies including Cardiff & Vale NHS Trust, Vale of Glamorgan Council, Cardiff Council and Cardiff & Vale Mental Health Forum.
We are funded by Cardiff and Vale UHB, Cardiff Council, Vale of Glamorgan Council and charitable trusts.
