Publication year:
2006
Pagination:
24p.
Place of publication:
Edinburgh

A delivery plan for mental health in Scotland is presented. A functional approach is used that focuses on the key elements of services that need to be in place at each point in a journey of care so that clinicians, service users and carers can be clear about what needs to be delivered. In any service there should be a description of the purpose of the service, the target population, as well as arrangements for standardised joint assessment, referral, admission and discharge, and a range of interventions and therapies which meet the range of needs within the community. The document covers: improvement of the patient and carer experience of mental health services, how to respond better to depression, anxiety and stress, improving the physical health of people with mental illness, better management of long-term mental health conditions, early detection and intervention in self-harm and suicide prevention, better management of admission to, and discharge from, hospital, and child and adolescent mental health services.
