If you are an adult or an older adult receiving mental health care, we are now working in new ways that support you in taking more control over the services you receive.

Where possible, we will enable a wider selection of choices you and your family can make about how this happens.

This is as part of the “Personalisation Agenda” which is a key strand in current and emerging health and social care policy.

It is about starting with you as an individual with strengths, preferences and aspirations.

This will help us think differently about the care and support services that are provided to meet your identified needs.

This is about all social care settings including those integrated with health.

Self Directed Support and Personal budgets can be seen as part of a wider drive to personalise public services.
