Guidance on new mental health standards

NHS England has set out guidance for CCGs on how new access and waiting time standards for mental health services are to be introduced.

It explains the case for change in four areas and sets out what’s expected of commissioners working with providers and other partners.

The guidance covers implementation of the new early intervention in psychosis and liaison mental health standards, the new IAPT standard for people with depression and anxiety disorders, and funding for services for people with eating disorders.
