Pilot schemes to improve services for severe mental illness

Pilot schemes to improve services for severe mental illness

SIX demonstration projects have begun work to help improve access to psychological therapies for those with severe mental illnesses.

The sites are already leaders in the mental health field and have been chosen to implement the National Institute of Clinical Excellence’s recommended psychological therapies. Funding of £1.2m will be used to help these trusts share information with other health organisations, about how they deliver the best treatments that lead to improved patient choice and recovery.

Work will include demonstrating how people with severe mental illness and personality disorders can get better access to psychological therapies; sharing good practice to other services and sharing how improvements in services can be made; providing good quality data on how services can be improved for patients and identifying the clinical, non-clinical and economic benefits.

The selected sites are: (for psychosis) South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and Lancashire Care Foundation Trust - Early Intervention Service; (for personality disorders) Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in Enfield, Haringey NHS Foundation Trust, and North East London Foundation Trust; (for bipolar disorder) Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust and Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research, Lancaster University.
