MH FINANCE – HFMA’s Mental Health Faculty
Welcome to MH FINANCE, the Associations Mental Health Faculty.
MH FINANCE is a network of trusts who have common interest, and can share experience and expertise, and want to use their combined numbers to try and influence thought and policy in the sector. The Faculty aims to support and represent the interests of finance professionals in organisations delivering mental health and leading disability services and provides an opportunity to work on solutions for common issues.
If your organisation is a member of the Faculty you should be able to view everything in this area of the website including the forum and documents. If your trust is not a member and you would like information on joining please contact Kamal Babra at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0117 938 8991. Membership form available for download here.
The programme is developed under the guidance of a steering group consisting of members from mental health trust from across the county and its activities are devised directly from input from the membership.
MH FINANCE Directors’ Forum
The Directors’ Forum is designed to be a high level briefing for Directors on topics of particular significance to organizations providing mental health services, but it also offers the important opportunity for networking. This gathering of individuals will meet twice a year, will operates under Chatham House rule, and the number and level of attendees will be restricted in order to maintain the intimate nature of the gathering. The likes of Kathryn Tyson, Prof Louis Appleby, Bob Alexander and Sir Roy Lilley have already addressed this forum. Membership of the Faculty will give you the opportunity to send two delegates to these gatherings free (Director and Deputy level ideally).
MH FINANCE Technical Forum
Technical Forums are developed as a direct output of the steering group mentioned above, and are designed to be an informal and interactive environment for finance directors and senior finance staff to discuss and debate topics of particular significance to the MH finance community. The steering group decides on the subjects to be covered at the Technical Forums, which will tend to be issues that feature heavily in their meetings and which they feel merit a particular focus and possibly some external guidance and assistance. In general these are half day events, often starting with a networking lunch.
Wherever possible the meetings will be held in conjunction with the FT FINANCE Faculty’s activities in order to maximise the benefit of your time out of the office.
