Mental Health Services Review


Summary

We are working with Bath and North East Somerset Council to review how we can improve community mental health services.

We asked people: what is working well? What could be improved? What are the gaps in current services? A huge thank you to everyone who filled in our survey or met with us earlier this year. You can read a summary of what people told us in the ‘Engagement Report’ below.

We are exploring different options for how services could be delivered and will be asking for people’s feedback again in July-August 2018.

We are working with Bath and North East Somerset Council to carry out a review of community mental health services between May – November 2017.

Our review will look at the way community mental health services are provided, 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 earlier this year, and help us to achieve positive changes in mental health and wellbeing provision for people living in B&NES.

As part of our review, we are engaging with a wide range of people – from those who provide services, to those who use services and the people who care for them.

A huge thank you to everyone who filled in our survey or met with us to share your experiences of community mental health services, earlier this year. You can read a summary of what people told us in the ‘Engagement Report’ on the right hand side of this page.

Over the next few months, we will be developing detailed models for how community mental health services could be delivered in the future. We will be asking the public for feedback on these different options in July-August 2018.

If you have any questions about the Review, please email mhreview@bathnes.gov.uk.

What happens next?

1. From January-July 2018, we will develop a set of models for how community mental health services in B&NES could be delivered in the future.
