Mental Health Need and Provision of Services in Southend-on-Sea
1. That it be noted that Southend has high levels of need for mental health services and that mental health promotion and disease prevention was critical given that treatment for mental illness was only partially effective and providing the most effective treatments for people with mental illness would only avert 28% of the mental illness morbidity. 2. That service provision includes a life course perspective and it be noted that most mental health risk factors are additive and contribute to an intergenerational cycle in establishing and perpetuating mental disorder. 3. That it be noted that parity of esteem is a key priority for addressing health inequalities and quality of life for people with and without diagnosed mental illness and that it would require a significant change and more flexibility in service provision. 4. That all partners in the health and social care economy commit to joint action on the impact of stigma and self-stigma on access to services. 5. That a further report providing a gap analysis of mental health provision, including proposals and actions which could address the gaps, be provided to the next meeting of the Board for discussion.
