Together for mental health: delivery plan 2012-16

This document presents a 10-year strategy for improving the lives of people using mental health services, their carers and their families. At the heart of the Strategy is the Mental Health (Wales) Measure 2010, which places legal duties on Health Boards and Local Authorities to improve support for people with mental ill-health. The main themes of Together for Mental Health are: promoting mental wellbeing and, where possible, preventing mental health problems developing; establishing a new partnership with the public, centred on improving information on mental health, increasing service user and carer involvement in decisions around their care and changing attitudes to mental health by tackling stigma and discrimination; delivering a well-designed, fully integrated network of care. This will be based on the recovery and enablement of service users in order to live as fulfilled and independent a life as possible; addressing the range of factors in people’s lives which can affect mental health and wellbeing.
