Mental Health Division Operational Plan 2017
Mental Health Division
The HSE Corporate Plan sets out our ambition for the Health Services over the three years 2015-2017. Delivery on our vision of a ‘High Quality Health Service valued by all’ is underpinned by the five key goals presented above. The Service Plan 2017 and now this Mental Health Division Operational Plan 2017 sets out the framework and actions that Mental Health services will put in place over the course of the year. These actions will deliver on these corporate goals, the priorities as set out in A Programme for a Partnership Government specific to mental health services and most significantly the mental health service vision, mission and strategic priorities, referenced above. This plan also recognises that underpinning all of these actions is the goal of improving the health and wellbeing of the population and of ensuring that the services we deliver are safe and of high quality. The modern mental health service, integrated with other areas of the wider health service, extends from promoting positive mental health and suicide prevention through to supporting those experiencing severe and disabling mental illness. Services are provided within the 9 Community Health Organisations and the National Forensic Service and include specialised secondary care services for children and adolescents, adults, older persons and those with an intellectual disability and a mental illness. The ten-year national policy, the Report of the Expert Group on Mental Health Policy - A Vision for Change (2006) is a progressive, evidence-based document that proposed a new model of service delivery which would be service user-centred, flexible and community based. The outcome of the review of A Vision for Change, commissioned by the Department of Health in 2016 will continue to inform the roadmap for the delivery of mental health services.
