Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.
The Committee received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services and noted the update. The City Corporation’s current Mental Health strategy 2015–2018 was approved by the Health and Wellbeing Board in December 2015. The CoLC and City and Hackney CCG share ownership of the document. It aims to improve the mental health of people in the City, keep people well and then ensure that we provide effective support when mental health problems do arise. An action plan was developed to monitor the progress against four priorities to deliver better outcomes for residents, workers and rough sleepers. This strategy is due to be refreshed.
A joint Mental Health Strategy will enable a collaborative approach to provide more effective mental health and wellbeing services and improved health outcomes for the workers and residents of the City of London. A draft strategy will be brought to Members in April 2019.
