We consulted the public to seek their views and opinions concerning proposed changes to current third sector mental health support services. We proposed locality based services providing information, navigation and community based recovery support services.
45 per cent of respondents indicated that this is the right model for the future, and 76 per cent thought the right service elements were included. Some concerns were expressed about the number of proposed locality services, funding available for these services, and how difficult it might be for people to access them.
Following the consultation, the commissioners have reviewed their proposals and the funding available, and we are planning to change the name and the number of localities before seeking approval to go ahead with the new model.
