Residents across Norfolk and Waveney are being invited to a number of public events to discuss the future of mental health services.
A review of local adult mental health services is underway, and hundreds of people have already completed an online survey to share their thoughts.
The review will inform the development of a 10 year mental health strategy, ensuring services are delivered in ways that meet future needs.
Dr Tony Palframan, Chair of the Norfolk and Waveney STP Mental Health Forum said: “We need to deliver a new mental health strategy for Norfolk and Waveney to ensure the resource we have is being invested in a way that makes the most difference. We also want to ensure this is developed by listening to local service users, carers, professionals and residents to help us define a way forward.”
Residents can book a place at two of three public events organised so far. A third is being organised for Norwich and the details of that event will be announced shortly.
