Transforming Mental Health Services
We have spoken to thousands of people about mental health services and support available across Norfolk and Waveney. We know we have services that are doing a great job. But we also know there are areas of significant concern where we need to do better. So we are working alongside service users and their families and carers, professionals, members of the voluntary sector and other stakeholders to improve mental health services.
Some of this work includes:
- An Adult Mental Health Strategy which focuses our work across six key commitments. You can read the strategy here. And an update on our progress since producing the strategy is available to read here.
- A project to transform mental health services for children and young people in Norfolk and Waveney. Read more. An update on our progress towards transforming services is available here.
- A full review of dementia services across the area
- A separate piece of work for autism
