Hywel Dda University Health Board is holding a Transforming Mental Health consultation workshop on Monday 17 July between 6pm and 9pm at the University of Wales Trinity St David Carmarthen campus (SA31 3EP).
Transforming Mental Health is a 12 week public consultation, running from 22 June to 15 September 2017, to help change adult mental health services for the better across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.
A presentation will be given at the workshop giving the details of the consultation, followed by an opportunity for you to feedback on the proposed changes, a co-designed model that encompasses:
- 24 hour services – ensuring anyone who needs help can access a mental health centre for support at any time of the day or night
- No waiting lists – so that people receive first contact with mental health services within 24 hours and for their subsequent care to be planned for in a consistent and supportive way
- Community focus– to stop admitting people to hospital when it isn’t the best option and provide support in the community when people need time away from home, extra support or protection
- Recovery and resilience – services that don’t purely focus on treating or managing symptoms, but instead help people to live independent, fulfilling lives with the help and support they need
The feedback from these events will be processed by Hwylus Cyf, an independent, specialist social research company. They will undertake the analysis of the feedback which will be used to inform any changes we make to services in the future.
