Improving mental wellbeing

Closed 15 Sep 2017

Opened 8 Aug 2017


Since October 2016, NHS Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Southwark Council have been working with NHS organisations, the voluntary and community sector, users of services, carers, and local residents to develop Southwark's mental health and wellbeing strategy . We have been talking about what is important, what services need to be in place, whether there are any gaps, and what works well and what needs improving.
We want to improve mental health and wellbeing by getting the most from every pound we spend on health and care in Southwark. We have developed a strategy which is the start of a process to consider how best to spend our money in this area. We want to know what you think about the steps we are proposing to take to improve mental health care in Southwark.
Our Vision

We want to:

•Support everyone in Southwark to live healthy, happy and longer lives;

•Stop people from becoming unwell where possible;

•Support more people in the community and at home;
•Work together to share the money that is available across health and care in Southwark; and

•Give people the skills they need to stay well and support one another.

In order to acheive our vision, we think we should focus on:
  1. Prevention of poor health and promotion of wellbeing
  2. Community based care and activating communities
  3. Improving clinical and care services
  4. Improving recovery
  5. Improving quality and outcomes


Why we are consulting

We want to know what you think about our draft strategy and if you support our vision, agree with the priorities we have set out and the actions we will take to address the priorities.

What happens next

We want to hear your views on the draft strategy. This consultation will remain open until Sunday 10 September 2017. We will consider all the feed back we have received. The strategy will be finalised following meetings with Cabinet and CCG governing body in October 2017. However, we will continue to listen to people in Southwark and use their experiences to help us plan our work once the strategy has been published.
