Together for mental health: a cross-government strategy for mental health and wellbeing in Wales

This report presents the new mental health strategy for Wales, covering people of all ages. It aims to address the needs of people with mental health problems or a mental illness, whilst also improving mental wellbeing. The strategy is intended to improve outcomes for service users, carers and their families.  It encourages the "recovery and reablement" approach, which aims to help people live independently and achieve their full potential. The strategy builds upon current policy and incorporates the legal requirements of the ‘Mental Health (Wales) Measure’, as follows: chapter 1 states the intent to promote mental wellbeing and, where possible, prevent mental health problems developing; chapter 2 sets out how a new partnership with the public will be established, encouraging an understanding of mental health and mental illness, seeking to eradicate the stigma which can be associated with mental health; chapter 3 emphasises the value of a well-designed, fully integrated network of care; chapter 4 highlights that a range of factors in people’s lives impact on their mental health and wellbeing. Chapter 5 brings Together for Mental Health to a conclusion with an overview of how we make the vision a reality.
