INFORM Cwm Taf Morgannwg is a service user led organisation that supports people with lived experience of mental health. We provide support to service users, carers and groups to engage with various opportunities to help improve and influence services with mental health and the wider community.

Our members come from a range of different backgrounds and reflect the diversity of the people of the South Wales Valleys. 


We are passionate about our work, and the way that we work. Our aim is to support the development of our communities to be better connected and more resilient.


We hope to inspire people to become more involved in their own wellbeing and support them in sharing their stories in safe forums and enable them to share resources that work for them.

Sharon Phillips

Founder and Lead Consultant

Starting as a Service User Representative in 2014 for the Together for Mental Health Partnership Board, I have been able to share my lived experience to consult on and improve services both locally and nationally.


Specialising in engagement and development projects, I  work collaboratively and ethically with a wide network of contacts and stakeholders to influence strategies and improve communication within services. 

I am passionate about empowering other service users and enhancing their skills and knowledge to improve their own mental wellbeing. With particular interest in ensuring that people have the correct information when they first access mental health services and how they can share their own experiences to improve services.

I am also a Samaritan, although currently not as active as I am engaged in work with a task group for preventing specific issues around cocaine related suicides.
