Across Herefordshire and Worcestershire all local health and care organisations are committed to providing the best mental health care possible. We want mental health and wellbeing to be high on our local agenda, to ensure members of our communities are aware of mental health and to recognise issues in individuals, and to be able to support or signpost appropriately.  When things get harder or more serious we want our specialist services to be equipped to provide support as early as possible, with a focus and commitment to recovery.

Organisations across our two counties are working together in partnership to provide services which are safe, effective and sustainable. We think it is important for people to be able to get help and support as early as possible and to live healthy and independently for as long as they can. When more support is needed, we want people to be able to access services quickly, in the right place at the right time.

The three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Worcestershire are working on behalf of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Sustainability Transformation Partnership (STP) to set out a Herefordshire and Worcestershire Mental Health Strategy.  We are interested to speak with local people,  staff and partners to better understand your views on mental health, so that we can ensure the new strategy meets the needs of local people. We are hoping to gain a greater understanding of what you think works well and where we need to make improvements.

Your views will build upon previous engagement work that has been carried out, but will provide us with an opportunity to work with patients, stakeholders and the wider community to understand what more we need to consider. This is an opportunity to work together to shape our mental health strategy over the next few years, to ensure mental health awareness is embedded across our communities, and to develop new and existing services so that people can get the help they need to support them in their recovery. We plan to undertake more specific engagement exercises in the near future, allowing us to work together to coproduce solutions.

This survey should take no longer than 5 minutes for you to complete. All responses will be anonymous.

Please complete the survey by 12.00pm, (midday) Tuesday 12 November 2019.
