Open Forum Mental Health Conference
SETTING THE DIRECTION FOR TRANSFORMATION
“We are saying to the NHS, to government, to industry, to local leaders and to the public that mental health must be a priority for everyone.”
Paul Farmer, Chair of the Mental Health Taskforce Strategy.
The new strategy for mental health services in England, The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health, sets out 59 recommendations that promise to shake up all aspects of mental health care.
The next five to ten years are about building the foundations for the next generation and driving real transformation. Key actions for the NHS include ensuring that people have greater access; services are designed in partnership; inequalities are reduced; care is integrated across physical, mental and social needs; and prevention strategies are prioritised for key moments in life.
We have to continue our efforts to establish Mental Health Champions in each local authority area and work with the Department of Health, research charities and independent experts to implement the strategy for mental health.
Join us at Mental Health: Forward Thinking – Delivering the Strategy to learn how the report’s recommendations will be hardwired into how care is commissioned, funded, delivered and inspected across the whole of the NHS and wider public sector.
