This review sought to assess the extent to which observed outcomes are attributable to the actions developed and implemented as a result of the two strategies.

The review was conducted between October 2021 and August 2022. The review took a theory-based approach, known as a Contribution Analysis.

Once the Theories of Change were complete, focus groups and in-depth interviews were undertaken with strategic and operational personnel from mental health and suicide and self-harm prevention organisations across Wales, and those with lived/living experience of mental health and wellbeing issues. Using the Theories of Change as a basis, these explored people’s experiences of providing and receiving mental health and wellbeing services across Wales, allowing the exploration of progress towards strategy outcomes and the development of the contribution story.
