Health project

Ayrshire Post - - INTIMATIONS -

A new strat­egy aimed at im­prov­ing men­tal health care through­out Ayr­shire has been launched by NHS chiefs.

The scheme for adults is named the South Ayr­shire Adult Com­mu­nity Men­tal Health Strat­egy 2017- 2022.

Bosses say it will fo­cus on of­fer­ing sup­port that is “flex­i­ble, tai­lored, and co­or­di­nated to those re­ceiv­ing ser­vices”.

The project is also de­signed to sup­port peo­ple to re­main at home and re­duce so­cial stigma.

Ste­wart Don­nelly of the NHS said: “Our pri­or­ity is to en­sure we pro­vide ef­fec­tive sup­port for peo­ple to main­tain and re­cover good men­tal health in ways that take ac­count of their per­sonal cir­cum­stances.

“We have iden­ti­fied what we were do­ing well and what needed to be im­proved.”
