Mental health and wellbeing services in Sandwell and West Birmingham
Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (SWB CCG) are part of your local National Health Service (NHS), we commission (buy) local health services on behalf of the local population. We commission a range of services in primary and secondary care and mental health and wellbeing services are one of these.
Wellbeing has been defined as “more than the absence of mental illness”. It implies ‘completeness’ and ‘full functioning’ and includes such concepts as emotional wellbeing, satisfaction with life, optimism and hope, self-esteem, resilience and coping, spirituality, social functioning, and emotional intelligence.
The kinds of service offered for mental health and wellbeing include:
- Guided self help
- Signposting to other services and help navigating to them.
- Peer support and access to social groups
- Gardening programmes
- Physical health care advice
- Fitness programmes
- Education and learning
- Social activities
- Healthy lifestyles and active lives
- Arts, gardening, creative activities
- Group work
Currently, there are a number of access points for mental health and wellbeing services in Sandwell and West Birmingham. We are taking the opportunity to review and reflect on current service provision and need your help to shape what a future mental health and wellbeing service could look like.
In October, we held a public engagement event at The Cap Centre in Smethwick which was fantastically attended by local patients and carers.
