Public meetings on local mental health services

29th Oct 2018

Residents across Norfolk and Waveney are being invited to a number of public events to discuss the future of mental health services. A review of local adult mental health services is underway, and hundreds of people have already completed an online survey to share their thoughts.

The review will inform the development of a 10 year mental health strategy, ensuring services are delivered in ways that meet future needs.

Dr Tony Palframan, Chair of the Norfolk and Waveney STP Mental Health Forum said: “We need to deliver a new mental health strategy for Norfolk and Waveney to ensure the resource we have is being invested in a way that makes the most difference. We also want to ensure this is developed by listening to local service users, carers, professionals and residents to help us define a way forward.”

Residents can book a place at two main public events, one in Lowestoft and the other in King’s Lynn.

1. 2.30pm-4pm on Wednesday 7 November at the Orbis Centre in Lowestoft

2. 10am-12.30pm on Wednesday 14 November at King's Lynn Town Hall

A third is being organised for Norwich and the details of that event will be announced shortly. Places should be booked for each event on the Eventbrite webpage.

Anyone can also feedback their views through the following online survey -
