The steering group is a high level group made up of a regionally representative group of finance from faculty member organisations. The group meets several times a year, and focuses on the programme of mental health finance events and the influencing agenda of the network.

Steering group meeting agendas and minutes can be found in the Resources section of our faculty pages.
