About the Drug Alcohol Mental Health Service Network

DAMHSN brings together local and national organisations who work in the field of mental health and mental wellbeing in Bridgend; and staff and volunteers that are involved in supporting people and/or working to combat substance misuse issues in Bridgend.

The network creates opportunities to discuss current issues, potential joint projects, maximising service opportunities and avoiding duplication of work. It is also an opportunity for the wider voluntary sector, which provides services to people who may also have mental health issues, to link in, share information and work in partnership.
