Mental Health Rehabilitation and Recovery Services Engagement in Kirklees

Carers Count invites the public to a focus group on the 4th of October at 10:30-12:30pm.

Location: Brian Jackson House, 2 New North Parade, HD1 5JP.

If you are available to come along to the focus group please ring Carers Count on 0300 012 0231 and let them know you can attend.

NHS Greater Huddersfield and North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), who buy (commission) health care for local people, want to improve local mental health services. The CCGs will work with Kirklees Local Authority to gather views on;

  • The type of Rehabilitation and Recovery services, including supported accommodation people would like to see (this would include looking at the current service based at Enfield Down)
  • What good community services for mental health could look like, including help to keep people well and the type of support that needs to be in place.   

The CCGs, Local Authority and current providers will work together to develop future services using the views of local people. 

What type of Rehabilitation services do they have now?

Enfield Down based in Honley, provides a service for people who have long term complex mental health needs. In addition there are 43 people who are receiving services in accommodation outside the Kirklees area.

What happens in the community now?

People in the community who require rehabilitation services are supported by ‘Community Mental Health teams’. Many of the people supported this way will also have used specialist hospital inpatient facilities.

NHS Greater Huddersfield and North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) want local people to tell them what else they need to do to ensure that they can support people in the local community with complex mental health needs. They also want local people to help make sure that the services they buy (commission) are right for all our population, not just those who use services now.

NHS Greater Huddersfield and North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) want anyone who has an interest in improving local services to respond to the engagement including people who use services now or have in the past, carers, families and friends, staff who work in services and anyone who has an interested in improving local mental health services in Kirklees.
