The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health

An independent Mental Health Task Force sets out an ambition to improve the care and support available from the NHS for people experiencing a mental health crisis.

It recognises that housing is critical to the prevention of mental health problems and the promotion of recovery.

It also recommends that local authorities need to build the evidence base for specialist housing support for vulnerable people with mental health problems and explore the case for using NHS land to make more supported housing available for this group.
