Newham residents’ last chance to influence mental health services

Time is running out to have your say on the future of mental health services in Newham.

Newham Council is urging residents to help develop a new model of day care provision that meets changing demands in the 21st Century.

The consultation to modernise the Mental Health Day Opportunities Service closes on Friday, October 19.

Nationally, mental health services are changing and the council is working to ensure services continue to support independence, recovery and social inclusion.

The new model of care will be based on more effective use of universal service provision, with timely and targeted prevention.
