Policy document providing a collective view of how mental health research should develop in the UK over the next decade, developed in collaboration with academics, research funders and people who have mental health problems. The framework sets out a structure to improve co-ordination and strengthen the focus on areas where mental health research is likely to translate into significant health benefit. It describes the impact mental health problems can have on individuals, its wider societal and economic consequences. It also explains the importance of mental health research in driving innovation in mental health care and provides case studies to illustrate the UK’s current strengths and the difference UK-based research has already made. In identifying the current barriers to mental health research in the UK and future research opportunities, the Framework highlights the importance of taking a life-course approach to mental health research; the value of involving of people with mental health problems; the need for securing closer integration of mental and physical health research to maximise research capacity. It provides ten recommendations to address the barriers and opportunities for UK mental health research. (Edited publisher abstract)

Author:
GREAT BRITAIN. Department of Health
Publisher:
Great Britain. Department of Health
Publication year:
2016
Pagination:

Place of publication:
London

This guidance document sets out how local crisis care concordat groups can apply for funding to increase the capacity and number of health based places of safety. If someone is having a mental health crisis and they come to the attention of the police, they may need to be taken to a place of safety – somewhere that is designated as safe under the Mental Health Act. The best place of safety is in a health setting, so that people, including children and young people, get the care they need for their mental health. This funding programme aims to increase and improve health based places of safety and continue to reduce police cells being used as an alternative. (Edited publisher abstract)

Author:

Place of publication:

This guidance is designed to provide advice to NHS employers on the retention and future employment of people who have experienced or are experiencing mental health problems. A key objective of the Government is to enable all disabled people, including those with mental health problems, to make the most of their abilities at work and in the wider society. It aims to do this by: providing active help for people to move into work; by taking the obstacles out of the benefits system; and by promoting equality and opportunity in the workplace. As the largest public sector employer in the country, the NHS should be making a significant contribution to delivering these objectives. This guidance confirms the strength of the Department of Health’s commitment to antidiscrimination principles. Its implementation will make a difference to the lives of healthcare workers who have experienced or are experiencing mental health problems; to their quality of life, their self-confidence and their work prospects.
