Mental health services that are available in the community to support people with severe mental illness are improving.

We are developing a new way of working and modernising community mental health services for adults and older adults, taking into account the particular needs of our four places (Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton).

There is more information about this transformation and how to get involved below. 

If you have any questions or would like to help please contact us.
