Public meetings on local mental health services

26th Oct 2018

Residents across Norfolk and Waveney are being invited to a number of public events to discuss the future of mental health services. A review of local adult mental health services is underway, and hundreds of people have already completed an online survey to share their thoughts.

The review will inform the development of a 10 year mental health strategy, ensuring services are delivered in ways that meet future needs.

Dr Tony Palframan, Chair of the Norfolk and Waveney STP Mental Health Forum said: “We need to deliver a new mental health strategy for Norfolk and Waveney to ensure the resource we have is being invested in a way that makes the most difference. We also want to ensure this is developed by listening to local service users, carers, professionals and residents to help us define a way forward.”

Residents can book a place at two main public events, one in Lowestoft and the other in King’s Lynn.
