This independent report has been developed by an expert group to explore how mental health services could be changed to reduce the reliance on restrictive environments and shift to earlier interventions. The Centre for Mental Health is hosting the report on behalf of the group.

The report has profound and wide ranging implications for mental health policy nationally and for the commissioning and development of services locally. The Centre endorses the report’s conclusions and hopse it will stimulate more debate and bring about change in the support people experience.
