Michael’s submission to Mental Health Strategy

Michael has responded to the Barnsley NHS Clinical Commissioning Group’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Barnsley.

The strategy sets out the challenge the community faces in meeting the mental health needs of the population, with mental health charity Mind showing that 1 in 4 of all people will be affected by a mental health condition at some point.

Michael has made a number of recommendations for the strategy, including the need to improve diagnosis, treatment and care, access to services and the implementation of long term objectives.
