A new era for mental health care is on the horizon… Mental Health: Moving Forwards – The Five Year Plan will explore how the new national strategy for mental health services can drive action so that people across all ages can get the right help at the right time.

For the first time NHS England are publishing a five year strategy for mental health services to develop a new culture and new ways of working. Prevention, service quality and integration are at its core. The Five Year Forward View has provided a shared vision about what mental health care should like, now the vision needs to become reality.

The clear strategic themes are centred on prevention, access, quality and integration. These themes will drive system transformation and help to establish a framework with measureable objectives. The Five Year Forward View Mental Health Taskforce recognises that the NHS alone cannot transform mental health services – it is ‘everyone’s business’. If we are to improve the experience of care both in and out of NHS settings then integration, access and co-production of services will be vital. So how do we do it?
