Consultation on the mental health workforce plan for health and social care

The consultation is running from 1 February 2022 until 28 March 2022.

A consultation on the key actions which will form the foundations of the multi-professional mental health workforce plan for health and social care in Wales is now open and would value your input.

The plan is being developed in response to the actions outlined in Together for Mental Health and includes all parts of the workforce who play a role in relation to mental health services.   To ensure that we build a holistic approach to supporting people this includes the wider, generalist workforce as well as the specialist mental health workforce.

Our work to date has involved significant engagement, research and analysis, and this has informed the suggested actions included in the consultation document.
