Part C - General Information

1.

Local Mental Health Services

The Overview & Scrutiny Committee is due to perform some external scrutiny of Local Mental Health Services at its next meeting on 15-Oct-20. Topics previously identified for scrutiny were:

 

(a)        how issues of isolation within the local population, particularly amongst older residents, were addressed through the provision of local mental services;

 

(b)    how apparent mental health concerns amongst local students could be referred to service providers by primary and secondary schools in the Epping Forest District and how quickly such referrals could expect to be assessed;

 

(c)       whether funding for local mental health services was being maintained or            increased by the Clinical Commissioning Group, at a time when the mental health sector appeared to be under increasing pressure; and

 

(d)        How Epping Forest District Council could work effectively with the CCG and the NHS Trust to support the provision of local mental health services and how the CCG and NHS Trust intended to engage with this Council to ensure the best level of service provision to local residents.

 

The Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust, who are attending the meeting, have advised that (b) is not within their remit.

 

If Members have any further issues that they wish to be raised at this meeting then please let me know by the close of play on Thursday 8-Oct-20.

Invitation to Engage with Essex Police pdf icon PDF 74 KB

Please find attached a timetable outlining plans across the Epping Forest and Brentwood Districts for a dedicated online engagement period between 28th September and 12th October. We will be hosting a number of Q+A sessions on Facebook, where questions will be answered live by the relevant beat officer, rural officer or District Commander, Chief Inspector Ant Alcock.

 

Questions are welcomed in advance to be answered on Facebook during the appropriate session:

 

EFD – eppingcommunitypolicingteam@essex.police.uk

Brentwood – brentwoodcommunitypolicingteam@essex.police.uk

 

Whilst we appreciate not everybody is on Facebook, the current pandemic and the new legislation this week has impacted on what we are able to do engagement wise. Of course, if we receive a question to the mailbox and it is noted that the individual doesn’t have Facebook access, we will answer. We will continue to advertise any physical engagements as and when.
