Mental health

Mental health is important to everyone. At least one in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their life. Some people will live the majority of their lives with a mental health problem.

In these pages we try to describe how mental health services for Birmingham are commissioned as well as give information about what services have been commissioned locally. This will include links to a range of other sites where more detailed information about these services can be found.

So, if you want to find out about how we commission mental health services, or if you are worried about yourself or someone else or if you are a professional and want to find out about the services commissioned locally, these pages are for you.


Mental Health Recovery and Employment Service (previously known as Mental Health Day Services) - You said, we did.

From March, to May 2017, we, in partnership with NHS Birmingham South Central CCG and NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG ran a consultation on changes to mental health day services.

We have now considered all of the feedback and would like to share how we have incorporated it into our plans.
