Have your say

A new survey is seeking your views and experiences to improve the county’s mental health services.

If you care for someone living with mental health problems, have accessed the county’s mental health services yourself, or are a provider of these services, your feedback could help enhance them.

The Health Needs Assessment by Lincolnshire County Council explores the types of services being accessed in the county and how many people are using them. It will also identify any challenges and suggestions for improvement.

Dr Shade Agboola, public health specialty registrar with LCC, said: “Mental health is now high on the national agenda and the government is committed to making changes to how these services are provided to ensure the best possible outcomes for people living with mental illness.

“In Lincolnshire, we’re looking for ways of improving the overall health and wellbeing of people who use mental health services and we’d encourage them to have their say on what works and what doesn’t. In this way, they’ll be able to help directly shape the future of these services.”

The survey is completely anonymous and confidential, although service providers may give the name of their organisation if they wish.

It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. The closing date for participation is Monday, March 31.
