Mental Health Engagement

United Communities (North East Hampshire and Farnham and Surrey Heath)

Wide-ranging feedback on services, experiences, successes and commissioning intentions led to the development of United Communities, a forum to ensure that conversations about Mental Health services can continue in a meaningful and sustainable way.

The United Communities group (Currently covering North east Hampshire and Surrey Heath areas) meets quarterly, to discuss the priority areas of work for both the Clinical Commissioning Group and for those using mental health services.  The individuals, carers, representatives from community groups and from statutory organisations help commissioners within the CCG to identify gaps and look for improvements that could be made with existing NHS and community resources.

United Communities has welcomed guest speakers, provides an opportunity for networking, and facilitates debate and discussion on issues most important to the local community whilst also providing an opportunity for commissioners to engage directly on their upcoming projects, suggested changes to services and larger strategic transformation.
