What we stand for
MERIT is the only group of mental health trusts working in this way. This means that we will be leading the way in looking at how we can develop mental health services.
We want to involve all those in the communities who are affected and experience mental health problems. This includes patients, carers and more than 11,000 staff. We believe that by getting people involved we can make sure our services meet the unique requirements of our mental health needs across the West Midlands.
In total, the population in the West Midlands is 3.4 million and people come from many different backgrounds. When people need our help we want to make it easier for them to get the help they need.
