Issue details

Re-procurement of the Sheffield Mental Health Information Guide

The Sheffield Mental Health Information guide provides information and advice on mental health conditions and the support services available in the city and nationwide.


The contract for the Sheffield Mental Health Information Guide with an approved 6-month extension is due to expire 30 September 2022. 

We are therefore seeking approval to tender, procure and award a contract to a provider to develop and maintain an All-Age Mental Health Information Guide. 


This will ensure that there is provision of Mental Health Information for people with all ages their families, friends, and health professions who require information on mental health conditions and the support services that are available in the city and nation-wide.

We have a legal duty under the Care Act 2014 to provide information and advice. In addition, under the Crisis Care Concordat the Council has committed to provide information on local support and advice about how to access urgent help.  Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that there is a new contract in place before the existing contract expires.


A service review has identified key areas for development of the mental health information guide highlighting the need for incorporating children and young people mental health information and support services to provide a resource in the city that incorporates mental health information for all ages.
