We Asked

We asked for interested service users/carers to become involved in this multi agency bi-monthly mental health advisory group.

You Said

Two volunteers came forward and after further discussion regarding the nature of the group have joined and attended.

We Did

In the three meetings held since joining their contribution has been extremely valuable.  In particular in respect to suicide prevention and crisis pathway development.

Results Updated 27 Mar 2019



This group formed from an implemtation group which had previously overseen the implemtation of three mental health business cases. The  group continues to oversee the early running of these, and consider new developments in mental health provision. For example, the old business cases - pychological medicine in primary care, GP navigators; new developments - mental health crisis pathway etc.

Why We Are Consulting

To improve the represetation at this multi agency advisory group we sought user and carer representatives.  This was first raised at the August meeting.

This was achieved  by contacts with Mind and SPARC and meeting with volunteers.  The first meeting attended by service users was 10th October.
