As part of our commitment to providing better mental health services in the county, we have developed a robust programme of work. The two key components are; ongoing work to support the reduction in out-of-area placements and a transformation of community mental health services. The community services are to be supported as part of the wider Integrated Neighbourhood Working programme.
Another priority includes continuing to invest in the children and young people’s pathway for mental health conditions. This is a continuation of the embedded transformation and funding invested by Lincolnshire County Council in the last year.
Other aspirations include:
- We will support the implementation of the national policy for children and young people in the community.
- We will establish a service for Autism and Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the county where people currently do not have local access.
- We will improve access to psychological therapies, expand the steps2change service and meet the population access target for people with mental health conditions.
- We will also improve mental health and physical health services for people over the ages of 16 years in Lincolnshire by investing in additional capacity for our mental health service provision.
