This year a key part of Healthwatch Leeds’ work programme will be looking at mental health in Leeds and they are starting with a focus on mental health crisis.
The number of people experiencing mental illness in the UK is 16 million: this means one in four people experience a mental health problem every year.
Healthwatch wants to know about the experience of people in mental health crisis and their carers, family and friends.
By mental health crisis they mean when someone no longer feels able to cope or be in control of their situation.
They are gathering people’s views in a number of ways and will be sharing the findings and recommendations with the service providers and commissioners.
