Review of the Mental Health Services - October 2022

Share this page

The report of an independent review of Mental Health Services has been released today (4 October 2022).

This is the second report written by Mr Gedze, a Mental Health Social Worker, and includes findings from interviews with various stakeholders, service users, family members, States of Deliberation members, private and third sector providers along with an assessment on progress made since his initial visit in 2018. This second report looks at all mental health and wellbeing services on island and not just specialist services delivered by Health & Social Care.

The author, Mr David Gedze commented that mental health and wellbeing services in the Bailiwick are well resourced but he identified some duplication in areas and gaps in others.

The findings of Mr Gedze's first report can be read here.

The 2022 recommendations are as follows:
