The Mental Health Provider Forum aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of people living and working in the district through effective partnership working and supporting the delivery of the Mental Health Strategy.
The Mental Health Provider Forum will provide voluntary an community sector (VCS) representation on the Mental Health Joint Commissioning Board (CCG, BDCT, Local Authority), the Mental Health Programme Board and related boards and committees.
This representation will enable the development of two way communication between the VCS, CCG and the local authority and will facilitate joint working/innovation through enhanced partnership opportunities.
Through its work the forum will link into the 5 year Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy and related delivery plans and will aim to identify gaps in provision and/or any duplication.
The forum will work to ensure the involvement of the VCS in the planning, development and delivery of service provision.
