Call for Evidence – Joint Scrutiny Review of Mental Health Services

Closes 8 Mar 2019

About this consultation

The Healthier Communities and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee and the Children, Young People and Family Support Scrutiny Committee, have come together to establish a joint review group on Mental Health Services.

Their aim is to gather important evidence on how people access these services and to use this evidence for future work programmes.

There is a lot of information available about Mental Health Services from previous research, particularly HealthWatch Sheffield.

Links to this are included below:

Challenge Sheffield

HealthWatch Report

Mental Health Care or Crisis

Young people's feelings towards self worth

As a result additional effort and resources have been put into improving a number of services over the last few years.

Research and informal feedback also tell us that different groups have different experiences of Mental Health Services, for example, men and women, younger and older people and people from black and minority ethnic communities.

The survey is completely anonymous and any information gathered will be used to identify what improvements have been made and to make recommendations about further improvements.
