Invite to Mental Wellbeing Support Workshop

Following a review of current arrangements for promoting mental wellbeing, both West and North Northamptonshire have concluded that a more strategically aligned delivery option is required.

A joint letter from North Northamptonshire Public Health and West Northamptonshire Public Health was issued on 21st February 2024 stating that each Council would be making separate commissioning arrangements going forward, based on local needs and the specific prevention investment and delivery arrangements that operate in their respective unitary authority areas. In this letter West Northamptonshire Public Health stated that it was planning a half day workshop on Friday 15th March 2024 – 9:00am – 2:00pm at The Great Hall, St Andrews Hospital, Northampton, to work with the wider VCSE sector to co-produce their new service arrangements.

The overall aim of this half day workshop is to inform the development of a service specification and the service delivery arrangements for the VCSE to support the mental health and wellbeing of local people.  This will be achieved through Public Mental Health colleagues working with a variety of differing VCSE stakeholders.

The objectives of the workshop include:

•             Sharing a strategic approach for improving public mental health in the Council area.

•             Sharing key priority areas of the work programmes, which are evidence-based and cost-effective.

•             Sharing some of the principles that will underpin the new service arrangements.

•             Outlining the proposed timeline for the new arrangements.

•             Co-developing ideas on delivery approaches that address strategic outcomes and priorities.
