A healthy population

We will use our expertise and influence to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities 

Working with you we will

  • Champion the need for mental health, dementia, learning disabilities and autism to be given equal parity to physical health.
  • Better understand the diverse needs of our population and use this to plan to deliver care that increases access and positive outcomes for everyone in our community.
  • Encourage and support a thriving community and voluntary sector, that promotes positive mental wellbeing and enables access to self-help, prevention, and recovery-focused support - reducing the need for people to access specialist services.
  • Use our experience and expertise to support and train others in our community.
  • Integrate care with other services where it improves access, experience and outcomes.
  • Work with partners to support our service users to access a safe place to live, financial support and meaningful employment.
