Local Specialist Mental Health & Addiction Service

Stakeholders have told us that changes are needed to provide a mental health and addiction system that is more equitable, accessible, and closer to home.  
Changes we are exploring as part of the Adult Community Mental Health and Addiction workstream include transforming how we deliver specialist adult community mental health and addiction services to our communities, to provide a more integrated and holistic response.  

We are currently collating the feedback we received and drafting a proposal which will be shared for consultation in June 2023. If you would like to share your thoughts, email our Change Programme team
