A group of councillors from the City of Wolverhampton Council are carrying out a scrutiny review of adult mental health services in the City - and want to hear from anyone who has used one of more of them within the last year.
People can have their say by completing a short survey available at Type=links;Linkid=9745;Title=Adult Mental Health Services in Wolverhampton;Target=_blank;. It asks what service the individual has used, how they would rate the service, whether it was available at the time they needed it, and what, if anything, could have been done to improve the support they received.
Councillor Lynne Moran, who is leading the scrutiny review, said: "Wolverhampton has some very good mental health provision but it could always be better, and this review is about ensuring the services that are available to people in our City are fit for purpose, not just now, but also in the future.
"We want to find out how adult mental health services in Wolverhampton can be improved still further - and the best way to do this is to speak to people who have first hand experience of them.
"I would urge anyone who has used adult mental health services in the last 12 months, or has experience of them through a friend or relative, to spare a few moments to complete this short survey, and help shape future service provision."
To have your say, please visit Type=links;Linkid=9745;Title=Adult Mental Health Services in Wolverhampton;Target=_blank; or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to include confidential information in your response. The consultation continues for a month.
