Background
Series of events last year ahead of the
SDS Act
Wide range of people
Rich and engaging conversations from different
perspectives

Painted a picture of how things currently


are

people

lives

The picture
Few people thought health and social
care system was working for people with
mental health problems
Not just social care and health
Housing, employment, welfare support,
stigma, arts and culture

The question
How do we make things better?
SDS Act
A major part of the answer
Empower people to have control and responsibility
Offering people different choices for organising their
care

Big increase in personalisation, through
Personal Budgets
But look under the surface and majority
were council-arranged services
Why?
Resource Allocation Systems
Menus of choices
Panels
A fundamental change in mindset?

Frontline practitioners
Ask yourself: How many people this week
have I supported to do something
differently?
Constantly ask yourself: how is what Im
doing now different to what I did before?
If not, whats getting in the way?
and what can I do to change it?

Being a persuasive individual


Pressure and constraints in the mental
health system
People think things are beyond their

Progress is where as many people as
possible take the opportunity to do
something different
no matter how small a change they personally
make
