Success at CCG event for mental health services

On 6 June the CCGs held a successful event to look at better health outcomes for adult mental health services. The event was a partnership exercise with South Staffordshire and Shropshire Foundation Trust, which would look at how we can all work together to improve adult mental health services.

Lots of partners enjoyed the event and there was an interactive market place including Healthwatch, Starfish, Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, Mental Health Social Inclusion and Recovery Services, Individual Placement Support (Making Space), South Staffordshire Network for Mental Health, Changes, Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership NHS Trust, Together UK and Project Happiness. A number of patients and service users attended the event where they shared their experiences - pictured Toni, sharing her story.

The day included an overview from Jonathan Bletcher, Director of Commissioning for the CCGs, comments from Alison Bussey, Chief Operating Officer from South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare Foundation Trust plus a patient experience and a laughter session. Interactive discussions explored how inclusive our mental health services really are in practice.

It was great to see everyone coming together and the feedback has been extremely useful. Next steps are to keep the conversation going and to formulate a partnership action plan to improve the way we work.
