  • Mental Health and Wellbeing Services and Supports in Communities - survey

    Created: 03/02/2022, Updated: 04/02/2022

    The Scottish Government has highlighted the development and delivery of mental health and wellbeing services and supports in primary care as a key area for re-mobilisation, recovery and re-design in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Health & Social Care Partnerships in Scotland have been tasked with developing proposals for community-based mental health and wellbeing services and supports over the next five years. A direction of travel setting out the principles which should underpin the design and delivery of mental health and wellbeing services and supports can be accessed here.

    The ambition for Fife is for a system-wide approach that not only creates additionality by increasing provision in communities, but for services and supports to build community resilience and be designed around an understanding of people’s values, outcomes and experiences, thereby creating better lives as well as better services.

    In the context of the direction of travel described, ‘primary care’ refers to a system-wide, community-based response to the following types of issues: stress and distress; emotional and relational difficulties; anxiety and depression; issues affecting wellbeing; and mental illness.

    NHS Fife and Fife Health and Social would like to hear the views of third sector organisations that deliver mental health and wellbeing services in Fife on their experiences of mental health and wellbeing provision currently. The views acquired from this survey will inform the development of proposals. 

    Access the survey here.

    Example questions of what the survey asks:

    1. What is working well?

    2. What is working less well?

    3. What is missing?

    4. What changes, services, actions could help address the gaps?

    5. How can we work differently to achieve our ambition?

    6. Where are the examples of good practice that we can draw/learn from?

    7. What projects, changes or solutions should we prioritise first?

    Please send completed surveys to Maxine Jones, (Change and Improvement Manager, NHS Fife) at [email protected] by 16 February 2022.
