Draft commissioning strategy for adult mental health services 2014 - 2017

Health and Social Care Commissioners and Doctors in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay want to find out the views of local people on how the county’s mental health services could run in the future.
 
The NHS and local authorities have launched a draft commissioning strategy for adult mental health services and want people to say what they think about the proposals.
 
The draft strategy, which is for 2014-2017, has been development in partnership with mental health service users and carers.

Dr Stephen Miller, a GP from Devon and clinical lead for mental health, called for people to get involved in developing mental health services in the county.
 
“We would like people in Devon to have access to excellent mental health services and we invite everyone to get involved and tell us what they think about our draft proposals,” he said.
 
“Alongside the core mental health services we recognise there is a need for local people and organisations, the NHS, local authorities and voluntary sector to do the things that will support good mental health and wellbeing.
 
“This may include providing choices that promote good housing and a place in the community, strengthen families, enable friendships, and support employment, activities and positive lifestyles.
 
“So we’d ask that people take the time to read through the strategy and tell us what they think.”
