Partnership Update – Mental Health Special Edition

Over the course of their lifetime, one in four people will experience mental ill health – that’s more than 185,500 people in Northamptonshire alone. It’s currently too early to know the full mental health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is undoubtedly affecting people and services, meaning this number is certainly expected to increase.

Improving and developing mental health care pathways, services and outcomes is one of four priority transformation programmes that we are focusing on together as local health and care organisations through Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership (NHCP).

In this special edition of NHCP’s Partnership Update newsletter, you can find out more about the extensive partnership work that’s continuing to improve local mental health services – and how a truly collaborative approach is delivering real positive change and shaping our plans for the future.
