The mental health review is looking at the way community mental health services are delivered locally, so we can decide what improvements need to be made in the future.
This will build on the priorities that were identified in the your care, your way review of community health and care services in 2016-17, and help us to achieve positive changes in mental health and wellbeing provision for people living in B&NES.

What the public have told us so far
The review began last summer, when we asked people to tell us what is working well in current services, what could be improved, and where there are gaps.
During this first phase of engagement, we held over 60 face-to-face meetings and focus groups and received more than 100 survey responses from people who use services, those who care for them, those who provide services and the general public.
Last year, people told us that community mental health services must:
• Focus on preventing people from escalating into crisis
• Improve community-based support
• Drive parity of esteem (equal value) between medical and social interventions
• Improve transitions from children to adult community mental health services
• Make sure that services work together more effectively, and
• Improve the signposting of services.
A huge thank you to everyone who filled in our survey or met with us to share your experiences of community mental health services.
