Sex (Gender)

Gender plays a very important part in the way people access mental health services, but this has often been over-looked by organisations in the past. Our Trust is committed to making sure that all service users, regardless of gender, have equal access to and equal benefits from our services.

Equally for our staff, we aim to make sure that there are no differences in the experiences of women and men which we cannot justify, and that there is no discrimination on the grounds of gender.
