Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), together with West Suffolk CCG announced this week that a new Personality Disorder and Complex Needs (PDCN) pathway is set to be established in East and West Suffolk, giving people the opportunity of earlier access to treatment and better support for those living with personality disorders and complex needs.
This new pathway has been coproduced as part of mental health transformation, called #AVeryDifferentConversation. SUF has worked together with the steering group for this pathway, involving service users and family carers at meetings and ensuring your feedback has been able to influence the new service.
The need for a clear strategy for mental health support, care and treatment for people living with personality disorders and complex needs has been raised by SUF, service users and family carers since 2013.
We are pleased that there is now a clear strategy and new pathway for Personality Disorders and Complex Needs. We hope that people can now begin to experience a far more supportive and compassionate mental health service.
