Views wanted on improving mental health services

Following on from two successful events in Bristol, we are now planning to hold a number of meetings to seek the views of service users, their carers, support workers, voluntary organisations and other interested parties on the improvements to the services provided by AWP in other geographical areas of the Trust.

The meetings taking place are as follows:

Meetings to discuss the changes in Wiltshire and North Somerset will take place in the autumn and dates will be confirmed shortly.

AWP's goal is to deliver effective access to specialist mental health services through local GP practices and rapid specialist single assessments. The new services will provide intensive support to those in acute need or crisis, brief intervention in the community and seamless transfer to more specialist interventions in the community or as an inpatient.

The changes being implemented have been shaped in discussions with Commissioners and with input from stakeholders including service users, carers and staff. 

The aim of the meetings is to share the progress being made, discuss the reasons for the changes, highlight the benefits and get feedback from service users, carers, support workers and other stakeholders.

Drinks and refreshments will be served and reasonable travel and out of pocket expenses can be claimed.
