Call for Evidence as part of our major inquiry into the Future of Mental Health Services in the UK.

23 January 2013

Today we have issued a Call for Evidence as part of our major inquiry into the Future of Mental Health Services in the UK.

The inquiry is exploring what mental health services might look like in 20–30 years' time. This will involve anticipating what changes will take place in society, assessing the challenges mental health services may face in the future, and thinking creatively about the ways services can meet these challenges. We hope our findings will help ensure that all mental health services are fit for purpose in the 21st century.

We are therefore releasing a Call for Evidence in order to gather as many people's views on the future of mental health services as possible.

Our Inquiry Panel is chaired by Lord Carlile of Berriew and Professor Dinesh Bhugra.

Over the coming months the Inquiry Panel will be collecting oral and written evidence from a wide range of people. We are particularly keen to hear from people who use mental health services, their carers, and mental health professionals.

Have your say by visiting our Future of Mental Health Services Call for Evidence survey.

Do please help us by sending us your views. The Call for Evidence will contribute to the Inquiry's final report, which we expect to be published in Autumn 2013.
