What we will do: Mental health and learning disabilities

Mental health

We will design and deliver clear pathways of care that meet people’s mental and physical health needs. In Devon, we have identified seven priorities for mental health:

  1. Ensuring safe and sustainable services and addressing gaps in service provision
  2. Making acute and crisis care more resilient: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to create a more effective and robust care pathway for people experiencing a mental health crisis
  3. Developing a mental health outcomes strategy that prioritises prevention, early intervention and recovery
  4. Achieving equity of access and national standards
  5. Treating people with complex care needs in Devon
  6. Recruiting and retaining staff
  7. Increasing access to mental health support and services for children and young people

Learning disabilities

We will develop a new model of care for people with learning disabilities that provides them with a choice of local housing, care and support, individually-designed services funded through personal budgets and high-quality short-term inpatient care when it is needed.
