Devon’s NHS and local authorities
seek people’s views and ideas
on mental health strategy for the future
Doctors and healthcare professionals in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay want to find out the views of local people on how the county’s mental health strategy could look in the future.
The NHS and local authorities have launched a draft commissioning strategy for adult mental health services and want people to say what they think about the proposals.
The draft strategy, which is for 2014-2017, has been developed in partnership with people who use mental health services and carers.
Five events are being run in June and July 2014 where people can meet those responsible for commissioning, or buying, mental health services on behalf of the population and have their say:
• Monday 16 June, from 2pm, Copthorne Hotel, Armada Way, Plymouth, PL1 1AR
• Thursday 19 June, from 2pm, The Cedar Inn, Bickington Road, Bickington, Barnstaple, EX31 2HE
• Friday 20 June, from 2pm, Isca Centre, Summer Lane, Exeter, EX4 8NT
• Tuesday 24 June, from 6:30pm, Buckerell Lodge, Topsham Road, Exeter, EX2 4SQ
• Tuesday 8 July, from 10am – 2pm, Riviera International Centre, Chestnut Avenue, Torquay, TQ2 5LZ.

from Devon Partnership Trust
and Recovery Devon
New versions of two highly influential leaflets have just been published by Devon Partnership NHS Trust.
The first version of this was produced in 2008 and agreed by a consensus across the whole mental health and social care community in Devon.
This was originally produced in 2010 as a companion leaflet intended to offer ideas and guidance to people receiving services who are working on their own recovery.
‘Becoming a Recovery Oriented Practitioner’
We are delighted to be able to make available three significant new contributions to the literature on recovery.
‘Understanding Recovery’, by Glenn Roberts and Jed Boardman
‘Becoming a Recovery Oriented Practitioner’, also by Glenn and Jed.
‘Towards Partnerships in Mental Healthcare’, a commentary on the above two,
by Sue Bailey (President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists) and Richard Williams.
