The Sheffield All-Age Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Strategy was agreed in early 2023. This is a strategy shared across all partners, who will work together to deliver its objectives.
The South Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) commissions and works with many NHS, Local Authority and Voluntary Community Social Enterprise (VCSE) partners to oversee mental health services in Sheffield, for children, young people and adults. Information about all the services is available on the Sheffield Mental Health Guide website.
On average, one person per week dies by suicide in Sheffield. One death from suicide is too many. It is a deeply personal tragedy and has a ripple effect a long way beyond the family affected. Every suicide is a tragedy that has a far-reaching impact on individuals, family, friends and the community long after a person has died. Suicide prevention is a priority for Sheffield. Visit the Sheffield Suicide Support and Prevention website.
The ICB also supports:
- The Mental Health Partnership Network, which brings together VCSE professionals working in the mental health field.
- Synergy, the Mental Health Alliance, which brings together VCSE organisations to bid for money and funding opportunities.
- The Mental Health Collaborative, which supports Experts by Experience to influence service design and delivery.
- Chilypep, who seek to give young people confidence, influence and platform to shape services.
