What is it?

Community Mental Health Transformation will make services easier to access and use.  By everyone working together the aim is to make a real difference to people’s overall wellbeing.

People will be able to access mental health care where and when they need it, and be able to move through the system easily.

Health, social care, the voluntary sector and local people, including those with experience of mental health services and their carers, are working together.

Care will go beyond symptoms and illness, offering hope and the opportunity to live as healthy and fulfilling a life as possible.
