Supporting people awaiting a mental health diagnosis to have the support they need
We want to ensure people waiting for a diagnosis of a mental health condition have access to the information and services they need, so they are able to ‘wait well’.
Through this work, we hope to:
- Ensure mental health support services are better integrated, so people are not passed between multiple services without adequate help and support.
- Ensure people are placed at the centre of care and support planning and receive the relevant services.
- Ensure key information is easily accessible so people are better aware of the services and provision available to them.
- Improve access to support, including self-referral and GP referral, to speed up potential diagnoses and all people to start treatment earlier.
