The Committee considered a report of the Assistant Director, Access Mental Health and Wellbeing which updated Committee Members on the delivery of adult mental health social services and their partnerships which enable a shift towards prevention and early intervention in order to improve the wellbeing and outcomes for individuals.


The update covered the Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) Annual Report as well as their system wide developments regarding early intervention, prevention, and discharge.
