The National Mental Health Strategy (2017 – 2027) emphasises the need to reduce the reliance on hospital beds and to build capacity within our local communities for those who use mental health services. Following these recommendations, the Fife Health & Social Care Partnership is reviewing the mental health support services in Fife.

We have been working closely with partners and colleagues involved in delivering these support services, and those that you have used these services to provide feedback. This feedback has now been incorporated into the draft Mental Health Strategy and we are looking for views on this.

Your views are important to us and will help shape the future mental health services in Fife.

What you need to do:

Please read through the draft strategy and let us know what you think by completing the response form and returning it to Julie O’Neill. Closing date for responses is Friday 19 April 2019.

Contact details:

  • Email: Julie.ONeill@fife.gov.uk
  • Address: Julie O’Neill, Business Manager, Health & Social Care Partnership, Level 5, Rothesay House, Glenrothes KY7 5QP

Next steps:

Once all the feedback has been considered, the final Mental Health Strategy for Fife will be submitted to various committees for approval and then for formal ratification by the Health & Social Care Partnership Integration Joint Board.
