Adult Mental Health Strategy 2017 - 2022
Adult Mental Health & Emotional Wellbeing Strategy 2017-2022
The strategy will guide local work to improve mental health for all adults living and working in South Gloucestershire over the next 5 years. It has been developed from the Adult Mental Health Needs Assessment, which provides a wide-ranging picture of the current and projected future mental health needs in South Gloucestershire. Gaps identified in the needs assessment are being targeted for improvement within the strategy.
The strategy sets out our local approach to improving adult mental health built around three key areas:
- Mental Health Promotion
This section outlines our work to develop a culture and environment that promotes positive mental health. This includes issues such as education, housing, employment, transport, cultural and sporting opportunities. This section also details our approach to helping individuals and communities develop their own approach for improving mental health.
- Mental Illness Prevention
This section focuses on how we address the mental health inequalities faced by some groups and our approach to reducing the gap between their quality of life and the rest of the population. We outline how we work with communities and the voluntary sector to meet different needs flexibly.
- Treatment and Rehabilitation
This section details how health services work with people experiencing mental ill health including primary care and talking therapies but also secondary and acute mental health services.

Summary of Results
Consultation Output Report
results of the public consultation on adult mental health
|Consultation Topic||Equalities issues, Health services and facilities, Mental health, Voluntary and community sector issues|
|Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
|Target Audience||All residents|
