In line with commitments made as part of the New Decade, New Approach agreement, Health Minister Robin Swann launched the publication of the new Mental Health Strategy 2021-2031 on 29 June 2021.
The Strategy will set the future strategic direction of mental health services in Northern Ireland for the next decade.
This Strategy has been co-produced together with a broad range of stakeholders, including people with lived experience, carers, the interim Mental Health Champion, health and social care professionals, academics, the voluntary and community sector, and professional bodies.
The Strategy is person centred, takes a whole life approach and a whole system focus and the key aim is to ensure long term improved outcomes for people’s mental health.
The Mental Health Strategy is available below for your convenience along with supporting documentation including:
- Funding Plan
- Easy Read version
