In December 2018 the Ministry for Health launched a mental health strategy for widespread consultation. The finalised strategy is being presented as the overarching framework which will guide investment and reform in mental health services as well as the wider promotion of mental health and wellbeing. This document presents the overall vision for mental health together with a series of envisaged measures for implementation. Change will be brought about through a combination of initiatives to prevent mental ill-health where possible, investment in physical and human resources and the creation of a new service framework which revolves around service users’ needs and is anchored firmly in community-based services.
