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)

Place of publication:
London

A comprehensive summary of mental health research, providing a handbook of key facts and figures, covering all key areas of mental health. The document shows that in the UK mental health problems are responsible for the largest burden of disease – 28 per cent of the total burden, while mental health research receives only 5.5 per cent (£115 million) of total UK health research spending. One in four people experience a mental health problem in any given year and ten per cent of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental problem. Common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety are distributed according to a gradient of economic disadvantage across society with the poorer and more disadvantaged disproportionately affected from common mental health problems and their adverse consequences.

Healing, in theological terms, and from sociological and anthropological theoretical perspectives, is a central function of most religions. A common theme in the literature of religion and mental health is the need for dialogue between psychiatry and faith-based organisations in the care of people with mental health problems. There are, hover, boundaries that are so tightly drawn that it is hard to see where they might share values and concerns. This article explores the interface areas of religion and mental health care in order to consider where consensus and from where collaboration might emerge. It suggests that while certainly there is a need for dialogue and mutual understanding, there is also a need for psychiatry and faith groups to explore the nature and boundaries of proposed relationships. The article explores: the role of faith-based organisations in mental health care; the role of clergy in mental health care; and the role of religion in psychiatry.

Pathways to unlocking secure mental health care

Place of publication:

Secure mental health services provide accommodation, treatment and support for people with severe mental health problems who pose a risk to the public. This report examines the extent to which pathways into and through secure mental health services can be improved through the different security levels and ensure a better flow between prison and secure services. It is based on a review of current secure service provision carried out by the Centre and commissioned by the National Mental Health Development Unit. The report finds that secure mental health services vary widely across the country in terms of who they admit and what support they provide. Most patients spend longer than a year in secure hospitals, with a lack of community support for those who could be discharged a common cause of bed blocking. It also finds that little evidence is available about the long-term outcomes secure services achieve for their patients. The report makes 15 recommendations to make secure services more efficient and better value for money.
