Summarises key findings from research conducted jointly by the Greater London Authority (GLA), the Association of London Government (ALG), the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health (SCMH) and Advocacy Really Works (ARW) supported by funding from the GLA, into the problems experienced by people moving on from acute mental health inpatient care to supported housing and towards greater levels of independence. The qualitative study, interviewed staff from 18 housing projects providing support at a range of levels at three London boroughs, and reviewed written material about the project. The project also spoke to local providers of health, housing and social services in each area about their experience of the move-on process. Finally, researchers from ARW used focus groups, questionnaires and one-to-one interviews to obtain the views of people with mental health problems who had experienced move-on firsthand. The full report is called, 'Getting a move on: addressing the housing and support issues facing Londoners with mental health needs'.

In July 2005, the Department of Health commissioned the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health and the King's Fund to conduct a review of the literature  on choice and decision making in mental health. The literature review included a mini-consultation with service users, carers and staff, and aimed to collect evidence on user choice and decision making in the planning and provision of mental health services and treatments, examples of good practice, and tools that support service users in exercising choice. The results of the review found that, despite examples of good practice both here and abroad, the Department of Health's vision of choice for people who use mental health services is a long way off.
