Mental Health Services Report
Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire (HWERY) has published a report examining the quality of mental health services in the region.
HWERY spoke to people experiencing mental health issues, and their carers, in Bridlington, Beverley, Hessle, and Goole in order to get their views on the quality of the treatment they had received.
The report concluded that an effective level of treatment does exist across the region, especially when groups such as Mind and Rethink are involved, but that there is a variability in treatment quality, and in the understanding of the needs of people experiencing mental health issues, amongst GPs and other care providers, which needs to be addressed
The report also highlighted the importance of voluntary and community groups in the treatment of mental health problems and called for these services to receive greater support.
