Our main interest and area of work in the mental health field is around peoples’ place as citizens and the extent to which services can and do support people to live full lives in their communities.
We are currently particularly working on three big issues:
Personalisation in Mental Health
NDTi wrote the Government’s good practice guidance in mental health – Paths to Personalisation – and we have reissued an updated version of this in April 2013. We also have particular interests in helping services develop person centred approaches and how payment by results links with personalisation.
NDTi has led the way in innovative practices around inclusion in mental health and provide staff training commissioning advice and a range of resources - click here for further information. We also support commissioners and providers to develop evidence based approaches to employment support and to housing and support for people with mental health problems.
Age Equality in Mental Health
In addition to our work on dementia, we have a particular interest in ensuring equality of access to general mental health services for older people. For example, NDTi developed a toolkit in age equality for mental health for the Department of Health and can help commissioner sand providers in meeting their statutory duties.
