Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Planning Forums

Have your say...

  • How can mental health services in your local area can be improved?
  • What improvements would support family and carers
  • What can be done to improve the way mental health services work together
  • How can we work with the community so people can continue to shape mental health, suicide prevention and support services in our region? 

Over the last month, we have held a series of both face-to-face and online community forums, as well as an online survey, and invited people who use local mental health and suicide prevention services to share their views to help shape the way services are planned and designed for the future. 

How we sought the feedback

Face to face forums were held in each of our local government areas.

Online forums were also held during November and December, and an online survey established for those that couldn't make the forums.   

What happens next? 

We are now collating the information we gathered, and we would like to thank every individual who shared their views, stories and opinions as part of this process. 

We anticipate that a report from these consultations will be available by the end of March 2020 (and we will be providing it here). The final five year joint Regional Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Plan report will be published by June 2020.
