Consultation on the mental health workforce plan for health and social care

We consulted on the key actions which will formed the foundations of the multi-professional mental health workforce plan for health and social care in Wales.

The plan was developed in response to the actions outlined in Together for Mental Health and includes all parts of the workforce who play a role in relation to mental health services.   To ensure that we built a holistic approach to supporting people this included the wider, generalist workforce as well as the specialist mental health workforce.

Our work to date has involved significant engagement, research and analysis, and this has informed the suggested actions included in the Strategic Mental Health plan for Health and Social Care

The consultation ran from 1 February 2022 until 28 March 2022.

Below are copies of the consultation document containing the proposed actions and a copy of the consultation questions.

We welcomed contributions from individuals, representatives, groups and organisations, in a number of ways.

We held a number of consultation workshops, please visit the consultation workshop page.
