As part of our plans to transform mental health, we’re bringing our services closer to where people live – to their local neighbourhood.
This work is called ‘Getting Help in Neighbourhoods’ and it’s aiming to create community teams that will work together to provide more support to people who need it.
What are local neighbourhood teams?
Each team will be different as it will reflect the local community, but typically the team will include:
- staff from local GP practices
- voluntary and community organisations
- the police, local council teams, tenant groups, local businesses, schools and colleges.
Getting Help in Neighbourhoods is part of the NHS Long Term Plan. Its aim is for more people to get support that’s relevant to their needs in the neighbourhood they live in.
This work has started in several neighbourhoods across Leicester and Leicestershire.
