The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) and Public Health Agency (PHA) want to hear about your experiences to help shape how care is delivered in Northern Ireland.

10,000 Voices is a PHA initiative which gives people an opportunity to provide feedback on their experiences of accessing Health and Social Care services by asking for members of the public to ‘tell us their story’.

Mary Hinds, Director of Nursing and Allied Health Professions at the PHA, said: “10,000 Voices aims to involve the public in shaping future healthcare services across Northern Ireland.

“The initiative acknowledges that patient and client contribution is fundamental to ensuring that services are commissioned to deliver better outcomes for patients, their families and carers.”

If you or someone you care for has had experience with either services for autism for children and young people up to the age of 18 or Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) within the last 12 months, you are urged to get in touch.

You can tell your story by completing a survey before June 30 at or you can complete it by downloading the app SenseMaker2. Enter the Activity Code: 10KVoicesAutismandCAMHS

Paper versions of the survey are also available on request at any CAMHS or Autism .
