1.5 Local policy context

The local landscape will be strengthened by the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Strategy, which will respond to the needs identified here. Together with the Adult Mental Health Strategy, South Gloucestershire will work to achieve local parity of esteem between physical and mental health, reduce health inequalities, and respond to vulnerable individuals at the earliest possible moment. Existing policy includes South Gloucestershire’s Children and Young People’s Plan 2012-2016, the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2013-2016, of which all three are currently being refreshed, and findings from this needs assessment will inform their development.
