Mental Health Strategy

Mental Health Strategy (2020-2025)

There is no health without mental health.

At SASH we are determined to make a lasting difference for local people and our staff. We want to make a fundamental shift in how we support the mental health needs of our patients and our colleagues. That’s why, even though we provide services that focus on people’s physical health, we have worked hard to develop an ambitious mental health strategy.

You can read the full strategy here, and we have also produced this summary version.

The strategy was developed over several months with lots of feedback from patients, the public, staff and other local organisations. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Delivering our strategy

One of the ways we are delivering our strategy is strengthening our work with our partners. In October 2020 we held a joint improvement event with Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Read more about it in the joint blog here.
