This plan establishes the direction of expansion and adjustment of the overall effort for the care towards the mentally ill.

The document is focusing on three main objectives:

To ensure that people with mental disorders receive a coherent, coordinated and effective treatment from both the social sector and the health care sector.

To ensure better accessibility to psychiatric treatment and health services.

To reduce the extent and severity of mental disorders.

In addition, the plan proposes the municipalities to provide a holistic social psychiatry, which creates coherence and bridges the gap between sectors and professions and thus supports the possibility of providing a focused effort to the person affected.
