Any responses will be published here.


A draft mental health strategy has been developed through an analysis of local need, and listening to the views of service users, carers, stakeholders and partners.

This strategy sets out our plans for the future delivery of mental health services in Hertfordshire. 

The strategy explains the approach taken to ensure people who experience mental health problems, their carers, and families are able to live well in Hertfordshire.

A number of workshops were organised to discuss the priorities for action. Five keys theme emerged:

  • Listening and responding service users and carers
  • Early and fair access to diagnosis, treatment and support
  • Preventing and responding to crisis
  • From recovery to independence
  • Valuing mental and physical health equally

We want as many people as possible to get involved to make sure we understand the full range of views.


Why we consulted

The purpose of this consultation was to give stakeholders the opportunity to have their say on the proposals.
