We are seeking views on how mental health services can record and measure what difference they make in people’s wellbeing. If you have had treatment or support from mental health services in the NHS or through organisations like Healthy Minds, you are likely to have been asked questions about your feelings and how well you’re doing on different areas in your life. We have launched a survey to get your views on two examples of these “outcome measures” that are currently being considered for use in mental health services throughout West Yorkshire (and possibly further afield). We want to gather views so that we can tell NHS England what people think, and they can take this into account in deciding what measures to use.
Please take a look at the two example sets of wellbeing measures on the webpage and complete the survey questions via the link.
It should only take a few minutes to complete the survey. You won’t be able to fill in the wellbeing measures – they’re just shown to illustrate the questions they ask. We would like you to compare the two sets of measures and tell us what you think. You might want to consider how they look, how easy they are to fill in, and the language they use – but you can say as much as you want and all comments will be useful. Please feel free to share this with anyone who might be interested. Please complete the survey by 11th April 2022. We will update this page with the results from the survey and news of any developments as this work progresses! Thank you for your feedback.
