Chance to shape future mental health services

Angus Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) has identified a range of improvements within the draft Angus Living Life Well plan as part of its commitment to ensure everyone across the region benefits from safe, effective and high quality community mental health and well-being services. This also includes substance use services.

The plan is aligned to the Tayside Mental Health and Learning Disability Strategy – Living Life Well: A lifelong approach to mental health in Tayside.

The plan aims to help support people to manage their mental health and access the right help at the right time in their local community when needed; support individuals to increase their knowledge about medicines through close links with pharmacy and make informed decisions about their treatment; reduce stigma around mental health and encourage people to talk about it; improve the care and support provided to people with dementia and their carers.
Jillian Galloway, Head of Health and Community Care Services, said: “Mental health affects us all and we want people in Angus to help shape our services. We would like to hear from as many people as possible, especially those with lived experience, families, carers and people who deliver services.”

Details are available to view at www.angushscp.scot. Feedback can be given by completing a short survey at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/STSLJD2. Paper copies are also available by calling 01307 498560, Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. The survey will close on Friday, March 25.
