Mental Health

Together with partners and building on work already underway, we will focus on developing services that meet the needs of local people with the aim of:  

  • Enabling more people to live independently/reducing the need for residential care.
  • Delivering treatment locally wherever possible, rather than out of the area.
  • Enhancing community rehabilitation services
  • Improving access to high quality talking or psychological therapy services
  • Improving access to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and improving the experience of service users and their families (link –
  • Valuing mental health equally with physical health (parity of esteem).
