Transforming Community Mental Health Services

Lead: Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Partners: Leeds Office of the NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB in Leeds), Leeds Involving People

Period: 1st Jul 2021 - 30th Nov 2024

We are working with our partners in the city to improve (transform) the way community mental health services are delivered in Leeds.

Brief description of the project

The Community Mental Health (CMH) transformation project is about bringing together all the services that support people with mental health needs. This will ensure that people get the right care, in the right place, without having to repeat their story.

Supporting primary and community mental health services will mean that we can:

  • Respond better to people’s needs.
  • Remove barriers to access.
  • Support people to support care and treatment as early as possible.
  • To live as well as possible in their communities.

Who will we speak to?

We will be talking to people in Leeds with a range of mental health needs and the professionals, and services, who support them.

What and how will we ask?

We are asking people to tell us about their experiences of using mental health services. We will also ask professionals, who provide mental health services in Leeds, to tell us what works well. We will use a range of methods to involve people including surveys, groupwork, and case studies.

What will we do?

We will use feedback from people with mental health needs and professionals to improve the way community mental health services in Leeds work together.

How can you help?

The more conversations we have, the better life is for everyone, Talking about mental health isn’t always easy and sometimes it’s even harder to say how you really feel. But a conversation has the power to change lives. It’s Time to Talk:
