‘Improving outcomes for people with mental health problems’, sets out a vision for mental health services across Birmingham.
While lots of progress has been made in delivering this strategy to date, leaders from across the city have come together to review the strategy direction, to make sure we are still focusing on the areas that need our attention most.
Delivery of the strategy is overseen by the mental health system strategy group. This group includes representation from NHS Birmingham CrossCity, Birmingham South Central and Sandwell and West Birmingham CCGs, alongside Birmingham City Council. The group would like a conversation about the strategy to take place, with key partners and organisations, across the city. We need to ensure that it is fit for purpose, that the right areas are being focused on and importantly to create good and mutually beneficial working relationships.
The four outcomes we would like to focus on are:
- Prevent mental ill-health and get earlier help for people starting to suffer poor mental wellbeing;
- Protect those who are most vulnerable from the adverse effects of mental Ill-health;
- Better management of mental health crises and preventing them from occurring; and
- Recovery of people with mental health problems into everyday life.
