The Welsh Government has, in January this year, published their Together for Mental Health Delivery Plan which outlines their strategy for improving mental health in Wales from 2019 to 2022.
Earlier last year, we submitted our response to the consultation on the plan, and we asked the Welsh Government to look at a number of issues.
The plan contains actions and milestones for services, health boards and a range of sectors to work together with the Welsh Government to deliver.
In August last year, during the consultation period, we asked that the Together for Mental Health Delivery Plan considers:
- improved access to specialist mental health services
- out of area placements
- resourcing for crisis and out of hours teams
- prevention at a public health level
- a programme to increase access to psychological therapies
- improving co-production between people, clinicians and commissioners of services
The plan which is now published looks at four overarching priorities including:
- reducing health inequalities, promoting equity of access and supporting the Welsh language
- strengthening co-production and supporting carers
- research, data and outcomes
