Mental Health and Dementia Needs Assessment
February 2020, produced by the Public Health Intelligence Team

Mental health for each individual is different and is affected by individual factors and experiences, social interaction, social structures and resources, in addition to cultural values. An individual’s mental health is influenced throughout the life course and events throughout life can impact each individual differently. Mental health conditions affect more than 25% of people at any time and no other health condition matches this in terms of prevalence, persistence and breadth of impact. Mental health is a public health issue and reducing the prevalence of mental health conditions is one of public health’s most major challenges. The promotion of wellbeing and prevention of mental health problems are crucial as mental health and physical health are linked. A mental health and dementia needs assessment of the population with mental health problems in the East Riding across the various life course stages was undertaken by the Public Health team at East Riding of Yorkshire council. The life course approach has been used to focus on the factors which can influence a healthy start to life and identify the different environmental, social and economic factors that can have profound influence over mental health and wellbeing. Through a literature review and using national, regional and local data sources, this needs assessment was produced.

Sexual ill health and wellbeing is strongly linked to deprivation and health inequality.

Data from this rapid needs assessment will be used to inform commissioning and service design) and forms part of the overall East Riding of Yorkshire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) process.

Oral Health and Epidemiology Intelligence Support Document
July 2019, produced by the Public Health Intelligence Team

Oral health is an important component of health which is often overlooked and can have profound effects on the general wellbeing and quality of life of individuals. Dental and gum diseases are predominantly preventable through good self-care and efficient dental services. With tooth decay as the most common oral disease affecting children and young people in England, it is important to educate and promote good oral health to children from a young age. In order to improve oral health we need to have an understanding of the oral health needs of the local population in ERY. Data from this rapid needs assessment will inform commissioning of children and young people’s oral health services and forms part of the overall East Riding Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) process.
