The ‘National Service Framework for Mental Health’ sets quality standards for mental health services. It says what they aim to achieve, how they should be developed and put into practice and how they should be measured.
The NSF for mental health will:
- combat discrimination against individuals and groups with mental health problems
- make it easier for for anyone who may have a mental health problem to access services
- create a range of mental health services to prevent or anticipate crises where possible
