Mental Health workforce- Fit for our future!

Together for Mental Health” is the Welsh Government’s 10 year cross-governmental strategy to improve mental health and well-being across all ages. Published in October 2012 following significant engagement and formal consultation with stakeholders, the strategy has been supported by a series of detailed delivery plans.

In 2018, the Welsh Government published ‘A Healthier Wales: Our Plan for Health and Social Care.’ The plan sets out our long term future vision of a ‘whole system approach to health and social care’, which is focused on health and well-being, and on preventing illness.

As part of the third and final plan, Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) and Social Care Wales (SCW) are working in collaboration to deliver a workforce plan for all mental health, some areas it will focus on include perinatal mental health, children and young people and psychological therapies.

To initiate this work, the first virtual conference will launch on the 30th September and will be available on-line for an entire month for stakeholders to learn what has been happening with the workforce to date and offer an opportunity for you to have your say using polls and interactive content.

We would also like to give you an opportunity to showcase your innovations in role development, ways of working or opportunities to approach the service in a different way that could inspire and motivate the benefit of the service users
