It is time to rewrite our Mental Health Strategy, our previous one was only until 2013, and there have been a lot of changes that we need to take into consideration, such as the Care Act 2014 , so with this in mind we are looking for your opinions and views as to what we should include in our new strategy which will be for 2015 - 2019
Why We Are Consulting
We not only have a legal duty to consult on the strategies that we write we also know that in order to get things right we need to listen to the real experts and thats you, the users, the parents, the carers, the workers, the general public.
We want this Health and Social Care Mental Health Strategy to be a joint venture, so this is why we are carrying out various engagement activities so that more people can tell us what they think is important and what we should include in the strategy.
If you would like to have a printed copy of the questions please contact
We are also happy to come out and meet with any groups that would like to get involved or that would prefer to talk about the strategy rather than completing the online questions.
If you would like someone to come out to your group please contact
What Happens Next
The Draft strategy will be written taking everyones views into consideration.
This will then be available for consultation from February 2015
The final strategy is due to be signed off by the Mental Health Partnership Board April 2015
