Government's New Approach to Mental Health

Four reports were published on 7th December 2009, which collectively set out the Government's new approach on mental health.

New Horizons : A shared vision for mental health, the Department of Health's new framework to enable England's strategic health authorities to deliver their regional plans for improving mental health and mental health services.

Work, Recovery and Inclusion : employment support for people in contact with mental health services, a new government delivery strategy that sets out a series of actions that will help meet the aspirations of people in contact with secondary mental health services who want to work.

Working our Way to Better Mental Health: a framework for action is the Government's first ever cross-government national mental health and employment strategy.

Realising Ambitions: Better employment support for people with a mental health condition is an independent review led by Rachel Perkins. It examines how we can strengthen employment, health and wider state support to help people with mental conditions on out of work benefits.
