Mental health needs assessment

Public Health, Suffolk County Council have produced this Mental Health Needs Assessment to:

  • Provide a picture of mental health in Suffolk
  • Support mental health improvement
  • Inform strategies for promoting mental health, reducing inequalities and commissioning services
  • Inform partnership working, with stakeholders and the community, through a shared understanding of needs

The NHS Ipswich & East Suffolk and NHS West Suffolk clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and partners want to transform the way mental health provision is delivered across the County. They commissioned this update to the Mental Health Needs Assessment (MHNA) to inform this transformation - #averydifferentconversation - which began in May 2018. For more information, visit the #averydifferentconversation webpage.

This assessment has been produced in sections which can be downloaded and updated as necessary, to allow easy access for users and straightforward revision. More chapters and presentations will continue to be added.
