Together For Mental Health National Welsh Strategy and Delivery Plan

On the 22nd October 2012 the Welsh Government published the final versions of the strategy and delivery plan - Together for Mental Health.

Together for Mental Health sets out ambitions for improving mental health and a vision for mental health services across Wales. It is the first mental health strategy for Wales that covers people of all ages. Previously there have been separate strategies for children, for adults of working age and for older people.

The strategy which is 75 pages can be accessed in English here and in Welsh here.

The delivery plan for 2012 - 16, which is 52 pages, can be accessed in English here and in Welsh here.

The delivery plan for 2016 - 19, which is 36 pages, can be accessed in English here and Welsh here.

The Together for Mental Health annual report for 2013 - 2014 can be accessed here. You can read more about the National Assembly for Wales debate on the annual report which took place on 13 January 2015 here.

National Strategy for Mental Health

During July 2012 Freda Lacey of PAVO, and Eleanor Barrow of PMHA, worked together to gather feedback on the Mental Health Strategy.

"We spoke with over 50 people across Powys. People who attended the sessions were predominantly a mixture of service users, carers and volunteers (who had been or were themselves, service users).  We had feedback from four resource staff members.  Four of the individuals we spoke with were committed in Psychiatric Wards in both Bronllys and Shelton Hospitals."
