Mental health

We have seen some great successes in how people with mental health issues are treated and supported within West Yorkshire whether they are victims or suspected perpetrators of a crime. However more needs to be done to reduce the risk of those with mental health issues both committing and becoming victims of crime. Through the Mental Health Forum I will make sure that partners are working together to collectively support people with mental health issues who find themselves in the criminal justice system and look for opportunities to intervene at the earliest stage.
