One of our priorities is to improve the mental health and well-being of people in Wales.

We aim to ensure that mental health services are of the highest quality.

We are:

  • implementing the Mental Health (Wales) Measure to ensure that care is focused on people’s needs
  • ensuring the improvements in mental health services and wider wellbeing outlined in the ‘Together for Mental Health’ delivery plan are achieved - this will be monitored by the National Partnership Board
  • delivering the relevant commitments in the Programme for Government 2011-16.

This is an agreement to improve how people, in mental health crisis and who present a risk to themselves or the public, are helped. Importantly, it will help prevent the inappropriate detention of people within a police custody suite, or of being drawn into the criminal justice system.
