Delivering the Powys Hearts and Minds Strategy

Improving the mental health and emotional wellbeing of the people of Powys is a shared priority of partners working together within the Powys Local Service Board. Hearts and Minds: Together for Mental Health in Powys is the strategic plan which sets out how local priorities within “One Powys Yn Un” and Welsh Government’s ambitious programme for mental health in Wales will be achieved. It spans all ages and includes the implementation of new legal entitlements known as the Mental Health (Wales) Measure 2010; and Welsh Government’s strategy “Together for Mental Health”.  

The Powys Mental Health Planning and Development Partnership

The Powys Mental Health Planning and Development Partnership is one of seven such partnerships in Wales driving forward the action required to improve the mental health and emotional wellbeing of local people. It brings together agencies at Director level (or the equivalent) including Powys County Council, Dyfed Powys Police, Powys teaching Health Board, Powys Community Health Councils and Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations.  

Hearts and Minds Mental Health Strategy: Adult Service Model 

Powys teaching Health Board has prioritised Mental Health within the Annual Plan 2013/14. In December 2012 the Board approved Hearts and Minds: Mental Health Strategy, a joint strategic approach with Powys County Council and other partners. A critical part of implementing the strategy has been the review of the adult services model. The process used to develop the model; summary of the key aspects of the model and next steps for implementation can be read here.

Developing the Mental Health Vision for Powys 2012

The Mental Health Vision for Powys was developed as a result of the Mental Health Measure 2010 and the National Strategy for Mental Health 2012.  You may have been consulted about this National Strategy.  Following on from this, Powys Teaching Health Board developed a new strategy, the "Vision" for Powys.  

It was important that individuals had an opportunity to be part of developing this new "Vision".   Powys Teaching Health Board, in partnership with local services, asked for feedback and views on the "Vision".

Setting the scene

There are seven key aims of the Mental Health - Vision for Powys.  They are:

  1. Building resilience and promoting mental and emotional health and well-being - for individuals and communities.
  2. Improving awareness of information, support and services that are available.
  3. Improving early recognition of and response to mental and emotional health and well-being issues.
  4. Enabling access to services that meet the needs of the individual as close to home as possible.
  5. Promoting hope and supporting recovery through clinically effective services.
  6. Targeting support and intervention based on need.
  7. Developing a wider partnership for health and well-being.
