“Promoting Good Mental Wellbeing and Resilience”
The promotion of good mental wellbeing and resilience is a journey that touches on a range of services. The first step is to encourage a healthy pregnancy and a nurturing childhood by supporting families to adopt and maintain behaviours that will lead to positive mental health and wellbeing. Public Health England has recently developed an interactive tool to help local commissioners and providers to plan their approach to perinatal and infant mental health in their area.

“Missed Opportunities: A Review of Recent Evidence into Children and Young People’s Mental Health”
By taking early action with children, young people and parents who may be at greater risk.
Providing a comprehensive overview of mental health from ages 0-25, the “Missed Opportunities” report highlights that there is an average delay of a decade in children receiving help. This decade of delay sees their problems multiply and get progressively worse, eventually escalating into a crisis.

From the government’s promise to invest £1.4bn to transform mental health support for children and young people in England, a £3m pilot scheme was included destined to trial “single points of contact for schools to ensure support is joined up and quickly available when needed”.

“Tackling Complex Social Care Needs”
Whilst safeguarding is an obvious example of where social care and psychological services need to work together, there are many examples of where they could work together, such as parenting support and children in need. In Manchester, CCGs, Local Authorities and NHS providers are working together to prepare for the devolution of health and social care funding from April 2016 with the expectation of better-integrated health and social care services.
