Mental health services
What are mental health services?
Mental health services support and treat people with a mental illness. Mental health services can be provided by your GP, in the community - such as a day centre, or in your own home, or in a hospital.
Mental health services are often delivered using a multi-disciplinary approach, calling upon the skill and expertise of a number of different departments and teams.
Wellbeing & Mental Health Strategy - Have your say...
NHS Southwark CCG and Southwark Council are working together to develop a mental health and wellbeing strategy. The aim of the strategy is to set out our aims and ambitions to improve the mental health and wellbeing of people living in the borough. We have commissioned Contact Consulting, a specialist consultancy with particular expertise on mental health to work with us to develop the strategy. One of the key elements of the joint approach is to ensure the engagement of the public as well as professionals in identifying the key challenges the strategy should address and to contribute to the ideas and actions it will propose.
We will be holding two listening events that will be open to the public and professionals to attend. We encourage you to participate in these sessions so that we can hear your views and ideas. They will take place on:
Tuesday 15 November at 3pm – 6pm at Cambridge House (1 Addington Square,
(Refreshments from 2.30pm)
Wednesday 30 November at 11.30am – 3pm at Thames Reach Employment Academy
(Refreshments from 11.00am)
