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.

You can download the draft commissioning strategy here.

Five events were run in June and July 2014 where people receiving services and organisations providing services met those responsible for commissioning, or buying, mental health services on behalf of the population.

New Leaflets

from Devon Partnership Trust

and Recovery Devon

New versions of two highly influential leaflets have just been published by Devon Partnership NHS Trust.

Putting Recovery at the Heart of all we do 2014 coverPutting Recovery at the Heart of our Wellbeing 2014 cover‘Putting recovery at the heart of all we do:
a guide to values, principles, practice and standards’

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.


‘Putting wellbeing at the heart of our recovery:
what can I do to get well and stay well?’

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.


Working Diagnosis Factsheet Jan14 coverMeanwhile, a Factsheet to assist staff in making a working diagnosis, has also been published.

'Guidelines to help Trust staff use diagnosis
to support people in their recovery'
