Open Forum

At the discretion of the Chair, a period of up to 10 minutes may be allocated at each ordinary meeting for members of the public to make representations or to ask questions on matters within the terms of reference of the Health and Wellbeing Board.  No member of the public shall speak for more than three minutes in the Open Forum, except by permission of the Chair.

Minutes:

A member of the public, Heather Cooper, raised concerns to the Board about the current policy for cemeteries in Leeds. Ms Cooper explained that the current policy did not allow graves to be decorated with flowers, which has a serious impact on the health and wellbeing of family and friends grieving for a loved one. In response, the Chair asked for the Director of Public Health to contact the relevant officers within the Communities directorate at Leeds City Council to explore the issue further, and to contact Ms Cooper with a response.

 

A member of the public, Gilda Peterson, highlighted an issue to the Board regarding the high thresholds for mental health support and the pressure for professionals to close cases faster, in response to high demands on services. Ms Peterson expressed concerns about the risks associated with this way of working, particularly for the substantial group of people whose mental health problems are not critical, but are still suffering with chronic and long-term conditions. In response, Members assured Ms Peterson that they were aware of the issue, which had been the rationale behind the re-procurement of the IAPT Service and recognition that some mental health issues could be addressed outside of medical services.

 

RESOLVED – That the matters raised be noted.

Minutes:

The Leeds Mental Health Partnership Board submitted a report providing an update on the progress of the development of the new all-age mental health strategy for Leeds.

 

The following were in attendance:

 

-  Caroline Baria, Deputy Director Integrated Commissioning, Adults and Health, Leeds City Council

-  Jane Mishenko Lead Commissioner Children & Maternity Services, NHS Leeds CCG

 

The Deputy Director for Integrated Commissioning introduced the report and provided a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the key progress made in developing an all-age mental health strategy for the city. The Board were also advised that the strategy aimed to incorporate existing strategies to embed a ‘one culture’ approach, to integrate a range of medical and non-medical services, and set out a consensus around language / definitions used.

 

Members discussed a number of matters, including:

 

·  Support for the ‘one culture’ approach from a number of Members, to enable patients to move freely between services. The Chair requested that the strategy be adapted to clearly align with the Inclusive Growth Strategy.

·  Support for the engagement plan, particularly in relation to the outreach work with third sector organisations. Members sought confirmation that children and young people would be consulted, and it was confirmed that the Future in Mind group and the MindMate Ambassadors were involved in consultation as well as procurement.

·  The importance of engaging organisations and businesses across the city was raised, to ensure that their workforce are supported, in relation to caring responsibilities as well as employee mental health. Members were informed that there would be an upcoming launch of a website for Mental Health in the city, which will include an employment package.

·  The need for a greater focus on families. It was noted that local research found that 34% of parents of children who had become looked after had experienced mental health problems.

·  Some discussion around the number of priorities, with suggestion that fewer priorities could be more effective.

·  The need for a greater focus on commitment to resources, in order to achieve parity of esteem.

 

RESOLVED –

 

a)  To support the proposed content of the draft strategy.

b)  To endorse the shared vision that Leeds will be a mentally healthy city for all.

c)  To approve the priorities and the four passions contained within the strategy.
