A consultation on the delivery plan of the Welsh Government’s strategy to improve mental health and well-being, for the period 2016-19. The strategy consists of five chapters and is underpinned by 18 outcomes which are set out in this document. Strategy outcomes and delivery plan priority areas have been mapped against the goals of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act (2015). The priority areas identified in the delivery plan are: all children have the best possible start in life, enabled by giving parents / care-givers the support they need; all children and young people are more resilient and better able to tackle poor mental well-being when it occurs; children and young people experiencing mental health problems get better sooner; people at working age are more resilient and better able to tackle poor mental well-being when it occurs; people with mental health problems, their families and carers are treated with dignity and respect; services meet the needs of the diverse population of Wales; People with a mental health problem have access to appropriate, evidence based and timely services; People of all ages experience sustained improvement to their mental health and well-being through access to positive life chances; Wales is a ‘Dementia Friendly Nation’;The quality of life for older people is improved, particularly through addressing loneliness and isolation.
