The Welsh Government’s ‘Together for Mental Health’ 10 year strategy was published in 2012 to improve mental health and well-being, and to improve the care and treatment of people using mental health services, their carers and their families. The 2016-19 delivery plan is the second of three plans which sets out the actions to ensure the strategy is implemented.
Adult Mental Health Services
Mental health services have community teams, primary mental health services and inpatient settings. The service also manages specialist services such as addictions, low secure and younger onset dementia care, plus many more.
