Integrated Mental Health Strategy

Partners in Gwent have worked together over the past 2 years to develop an integrated strategy for mental health for the areas of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen. The strategy was formally launched on 1 February 2013 and has 8 main priorities:

  • Aim 1 Communicate and work alongside service users, carers, staff and communities on the planning, monitoring and provision of mental health services
  • Aim 2 Develop a wide range of services that support community well-being
  • Aim 3 Enable the provision of a wide range of accommodation options
  • Aim 4 Ensure services based in the community offer support, advice and where necessary assessment and treatment within this environment
  • Aim 5 Provide specialist services that are available to people where and when they need them.
  • Aim 6 To facilitate an appropriate response from across organisations to the needs of people with dementia.
  • Aim 7: To ensure the best use of mental health resources.
  • Aim 8: To work across the 6 organisations to establish a set of rules and a structure that supports our working together, to plan and deliver excellent mental health services (governance).
