People in Devon are being invited to help influence the future of mental health services across the county.
NHS and care services are working together in partnership to address future health and care needs for the county, the Devon Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), which it is hoped will lead the development of a mental health and wellbeing strategy – and local people are being asked for their views on the strategy’s overall vision and priorities. These key areas will then inform the rest of the strategy.
Better support for people with mental ill health is a key priority for Devon STP, they tell us, and, once complete, the strategy will set out how services and improvements will be delivered in coming years.
The engagement process is open and continues until 19 October. You can have your say by completing a brief online survey – at http://www.devonstp.org.uk/get-involved/mental-healthand-wellbeing-survey/
