Mental Health Matters engagement report

A Mental Health Matters event took place in late 2014 which sought to hear the views of stakeholders in relation to the city’s mental health services. The main feedback from this event was that people wanted an opportunity to be part of the review of mental health provision, and have a ‘blank page’ approach.

This was followed by an engagement period on the Mental Health Matters initiative that set out proposals for the future of all age mental health services in the city, the engagement period was from 6 August 2015 to 16 October 2015.

The engagement report is now available on our website, containing a summary of the responses received. Feedback was clear that the majority of stakeholders, and via all means of communication, are overwhelmingly positive for a new model of care for Southampton.
