Health inequalities and mental health

In our Public Health Strategic Plan, one of our focus areas is on adults and older people. We're encouraging and supporting people to adopt healthy behaviours, both physical and mental.  

Individual, family, social, and environmental factors can affect mental health and wellbeing. Interventions at key periods of change in people's lives can prevent mental illness from developing. It can also support recovery. 

We lead Norfolk's strategy on adult healthy lifestyle and behavioural change. This is to improve both physical and mental health and wellbeing for the local population. 

We'll work with key organisations to develop a countywide approach to mental health. This approach will:

  • Promote mental wellbeing and resilience
  • Prevent ill health
  • Support recovery

We'll also address the emerging mental health needs of children, young people and families. We'll do this by:

  • Working with partners to improve community-based mental health and wellbeing support services
  • Working with schools to improve access to services for anxiety and low-level depression
