The draft Ealing adults mental health and wellbeing strategy was launched for discussion on World Mental Health Day, 10 October 2016.
The strategy explains:
- what we are doing to support mental health and wellbeing in Ealing
- what people have told us matters most to them
- where we could make things work better
It is about mental wellbeing, prevention and resilience as well as about conditions ranging from depression and anxiety to schizophrenia. It is about all the factors which can affect this – housing, employment, life experiences and access to support and care.
The next stage is to involve people in planning and prioritising practical steps we can take in Ealing to improve mental health and wellbeing. The current financial climate does not allow for new costly services or projects, but there is a great deal we can do to work better together and make sure resources are where they are needed most.

The final version of the strategy will be ready in the 2017 and will work alongside the children and young people’s strategy.
