NHS England Publish Public Engagement Findings on Mental Health

NHS England have published their report ‘The Five Year Forward View Mental Health Taskforce: Public Engagement Findings’.

This report summarises the views of more than 20,000 people on the top priorities for reshaping mental health services, as part of a drive to develop a five year national NHS strategy for people of all ages. Better access to high quality services, a wider choice of treatments, more focus on prevention, more funding and less stigma were the top five calls for change by 2020.
