Integrated Mental Health and Substance Use Pathfinder Programme

 

The Integrated Mental Health and Substance Use Pathfinder programme is working to redesign care pathways to improve quality of care and health outcomes for people with mental health and substance use support needs.

 

Benefits

Utilising a multi-disciplinary approach of service design, strategic planning and quality improvement (QI) to redesign care pathways we will:

  • Increase opportunities for people with lived experience, communities and partners from across Tayside to be involved in the redesign of services 
  • Work with colleagues and stakeholders across all sectors and the mental health and drug and alcohol systems to build understanding about how people and services can be better met
  • Develop and test an integrated approach to supporting people with their mental health and substance use needs 

We will do this by working in partnership with Tayside colleagues to: 

  • Share tools and resources that enable Tayside colleagues to apply their expertise to redesign care pathways for people with mental health and substance use support needs
  • Support development of a local network(s) of stakeholders and practitioners to use learning and build capacity locally in a self-sustaining way
  • Support the development of a prototype of new ways of working and an integrated model of support for people with mental health and drug and alcohol support needs

 

Who is this programme for? 

The Mental Health and Substance Use Pathfinder Programme is for: 

  • Colleagues from across all sectors and parts of the health and care system in Tayside who deliver or have experience of mental health and substance use services 
  • Those with an interest in applying strategic planning, service design and QI to improve mental health and substance use services
