This film, released by the NHS Improvement service, is a short visual walk through of the NHS Long-Term Plan commitment on community mental health transformation. The video outlines essential information and learnings on the development of new integrated models of primary and community mental health for people with severe mental illness (SMI). It describes the principles of the already-published Community Mental Health Framework for Adults and Older Adults as per the vision of the Long Term Plan. It also explains the roles of the different organisations that need to work together to develop these models, and the central focus on the needs and involvement of patients, those that care for them, and other experts by experience.
