Event description

Description

System Change is about changing the whole multiple needs system rather than the traditional approach of changing a single component within it. This requires focus on the connections and the relationships between agencies and the people within them – and how they in turn relate to people with multiple needs.

Mental health services have an important part to play in this approach. Poor mental health can lead to, or increase the impact of other complex needs.
