February 2021, The NHS Community Mental Health Framework for Adults and Older Adults Plan for Greater Manchest
The first draft of the prospectus for the Mental Health Framework transformation has been completed by the Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership and Innovation Unit, and you can read it by clicking below:
Across Greater Manchester Mental Health services claim they will be taking a “place based approach” that enables them to:
● Better understand and respond to local demographics
● Address health inequalities and the social determinants of mental ill health at an earlier stage
● Prevent and delay the need for crisis care or risk support
● Engage in meaningful co-production and co-design.
They hope to improve the quality of person centred care by developing their multi-agency team working: with a shared practice model that is strengths based, trauma informed and solutions focused; increased access to evidence based psychological therapies, social support and community connections; and ensuring the of our wellbeing of their staff, processes and systems.
They say the service model is designed to meet the dynamically changing needs of adults and older adults with serious mental illness, and those with very complex needs but who may not currently meet the thresholds for secondary care services.
They further claim that this programme provides a unique opportunity to invest in primary care, social care and VCSE provision as areas where there has been historic under-development.
