Hafal publishes briefing note for AMs

Welsh mental health charity Hafal has published a Briefing Note on Mental Health for Assembly Members which examines three key issues for mental health service users in Wales.

• The Mental Health (Care Coordination and Care and Treatment Planning) (Wales) Regulations 2011 – a Plenary debate on the Regulations was due to take place yesterday but was postponed because of today’s public sector strike. A rescheduled debate is likely to take place in the next week.

• The Code of Practice for Parts 2 and 3 of the Measure – currently subject to formal consultation.

• The new Mental Health Strategy for Wales – currently being drafted by officials.
