Director of Mental Health and Adult Social Care, Andy Weir, said: “Everybody’s mental
health and wellbeing is just as important as their physical health. It is vital that we, in Jersey
are able to offer services that really work for Islanders.
“It is not just a case of hearing from the people that use the services that we have, we want
to hear from everyone in our Island community. I encourage anyone who wants to help
make a difference and help shape what we need from our preventative and early
intervention services for mental health to take part in the discussion.”
