Following on from a discussion paper on the subject, the NDTi has explored how the mental health payment system is being linked with the personalisation agenda to provide more individualised care and support for people with mental health needs. The NHS Confederation funded this project, which involved conducting a series of interviews with key stakeholders in the following study sites:
Our report provides a brief overview of how the mental health payment system works. It then draws on policy, guidance and practice over the last 5 years to show how the mental health payment system supports personalisation in both theory and practice. Finally, detailed case studies of the 5 areas above are presented, showing how they have gone about implementing the mental health payment system so it supports personalisation.
