Justice Matters - mental ill-health and vulnerabilities
The next MOPAC public scrutiny meeting will be held in the Chamber at City Hall 11:00am -1:00pm on 21st July, bringing together key partner organisations from the criminal justice service to discuss mental health and criminal justice in London.
Mental ill-health and vulnerabilities
We recognise that it is only by working in partnership that we will be able to make a sustained and positive difference for all individuals in our capital, particularly those with vulnerabilities. The challenges we face, due to an increase in demand for services against a backdrop of continuing public funding cuts, requires us to consider how we can collaborate to achieve better outcomes.
Addressing health inequalities underpins our commitments to victims and offenders. We can do this by improving services and responses from partners through system change for victims, witnesses and offenders with mental ill health who come into contact with the criminal justice service.
MOPAC continues to work on the Thrive LDN programme to support the Mayor’s wider commitment to raise awareness and respond appropriately to the needs of those with mental ill health.
Justice Matters will consider health partners response to Mayoral commitments to address inequalities linked to mental health and vulnerabilities and get clarity and updates from partners in respect of delivery areas aligned to the commitments in the PCP. It will also allow partners the opportunity to ask/request support from MOPAC and each other to achieve their ambitions within this Mayoral term.
We will hear from health partners and what they can bring to the overall ambition to improve the outcomes of victims, witnesses and offenders with mental health who come into contact with the criminal justice service.
