Draft Hertfordshire Mental Health Strategy Consultation 

A draft mental health strategy has been developed through an analysis of local need, and listening to the views of service users, carers, stakeholders and partners.

The strategy sets out the  Integrated Health and Care Commissioning Teams plans for the future delivery of mental health services in Hertfordshire.

The strategy explains the approach taken to ensure people who experience mental health issues, their carers and families are able to live well in Hertfordshire.

A number of workshops were organised to agree the priorities for action.

Five keys theme emerged:

  • Listening and responding to service users and carers
  • Early and fair access to diagnosis, treatment and support
  • Preventing and responding to crisis
  • From recovery to independence
  • Valuing mental and physical health equally

The consultation and engagement of the strategy has commenced and will last till the 31st of July,  the  Integrated Health and Care Commissioning Team would be grateful  for your views and comments on the draft  mental health strategy.
