Mental Health Matters consultation
In the spring of 2016 NHS Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Southampton City Council and the Health and Wellbeing Board launched a public consultation, called Mental Health Matters, to gather local views on plans for the future of mental health services in Southampton.
The proposals in the consultation were put together following a period of engagement with service users, experts by experience, carers, clinical staff, and voluntary sector organisations during autumn 2015. This engagement gave people an opportunity to input into the design of mental health services right from the beginning.
The consultation report presents a summary of the responses received during the consultation and sets out next steps. Some areas we have started to progress, with changes already underway, and some areas will start over the coming months. This will include establishing groups to further develop services, and these groups will include representation from local people, carers, stakeholders and clinicians.
We will keep this page updated as our work progresses. If you would like to find out more, or get involved, please contact Amanda.Luker@nhs.net or call 023 8072 5568.
Transforming mental health care and services in Southampton
When we published the results of our consultation on the future of mental health services in the city, Mental Health Matters, we told you that we would provide regular updates as our work progresses.
An updated version of our Transforming mental health care and services plan is now available. This includes details of our progress so far and outlines how our plan links to other transformation work (including our local Sustainability and Transformation Plan, the national Mental Health Forward View and our CAMHS transformation plan.)
