Improved services for Mental Health

Hannah Pearson, from Merton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), updated the Raynes Park Forum on future Commissioning Group intentions. The slides from her presentation can be found here 

In response to questions from residents Hannah said Mental Health policy is a high priority for the CCG and there have been a number of recent improvements to local mental health services including:

  • Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service – provides support for anxiety, depression and other conditions
  • Merton Rapid Intervention service – a multi-disciplinary team that includes Mental Health professionals - and aims to prevent hospital admissions
  • Crisis Cafés – informal, drop-in support services.
