Our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) looks at the health needs of local people to help us:
- commission health, well-being and social care services in the borough
- improve the physical and mental health and well-being of individuals and communities
It supports commissioning processes used by health, council and community organisations in Thurrock.
Through the JSNA we lead in promoting work with partners on local commissioning plans, including support for joint commissioning arrangements where it meets the needs of each party. We work with through the Health and Well-being Board to make sure the JSNA informs the Health and Well-being Strategy.
Our most recent JSNA publications focus on the protective and risk factors for children and young people’s mental healthare, and a study of common mental health disorders in adults.
