The Social Cohesion and Community Safety Scrutiny Committee is currently looking at the issue of mental health services and the criminal justice system.
The committee has spoken to a wide range of individuals and organisations, including service users and carers.
A full webcast of the most recent inquiry session can be seen here: http://www.birmingham.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/116198
Inquiry chair Cllr Waseem Zaffar, is also keen to hear from members of the public, so at 6pm on Monday 21 October he is hosting a webchat looking at two key areas of the scrutiny inquiry.
He would like your thoughts on the following:
- The importance of partnership working between all agencies is key to ensure that mental health issues are recognised and treated at a very early stage.
- The provision of mental health services for 16-18 years olds who are susceptible to falling between the gaps of provision for young people and adults.
If you are unable to join us for the webchat but have any thoughts on the issue, please email your comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will feed them into the webchat.
In the panel below you can set a reminder for next week’s webchat.
