Join the conversation: Community mental health services for the future

16 December 2021

The NHS Long-Term Plan promised an ambitious transformation for community mental health. Join one of our virtual workshops to share your views to support future community mental health services and help improve the lives of everyone in our community.

For most people with severe mental illness, the diagnosed problem isn’t all they need or want help with. They need mental health services that go beyond symptoms and illnesses; integrated services that see a person rather than a diagnosis and that work together to promote their all-around wellbeing.

The transformation aims to create a care model that provides holistic, person centred care for people with severe mental illness, one which involves the integration of physical and mental health; the integration of primary and secondary care; and the integration of healthcare and social care services. So that people with long term needs, or specific mental health concerns will receive faster access to higher quality care. More information about the NHS Long Term Plan and mental health is available in this short video.

We want your views and experiences to shape a new inclusive model for Cheshire and Wirral to ensure equality of access, experience, and outcomes for people from different backgrounds.
