Take the Healthy Minds Wellbeing Measures Survey

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.

Setting the standards we expect for good work in our region – consultation

West Yorkshire’s Mayor Tracy Brabin has committed to putting in place a Fair Work Charter for the region.

By signing up to the Charter, our region’s employers will be making a clear commitment to a range of good employment practices that actively tackle the significant disparities which are standing in the way of ‘levelling-up’ our region, and doing so will be a practical way in which the Mayor can give those leading and aspiring employers the public recognition, support and encouragement they deserve for their efforts in providing fair work.

We are very keen to hear your views, the views of businesses from all sectors, and of all sizes, and from all our communities and groups, including those voices that are seldom heard.

Your views will help to ensure that the Charter is:

•             designed to be ambitious in terms of clearly setting out the Mayor’s expectations for fair work

•             practically achievable by all our region’s employers and of tangible benefit to them, and not just those in specific sectors, or our largest employers

•             of clear benefit and value to all, including our most disadvantaged communities and groups

By taking part in this consultation you will help us to understand what employment practices are most relevant to different types and sizes of employers, and which will deliver those tangible benefits to employers, employees, communities and West Yorkshire.

Details of the consultation and how to respond are here https://www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/fwc

Please note that the consultation closes on 22 April 2022.
