On the day briefing: NHSEI advancing mental health equalities strategy
Our briefing summarises key points from the strategy, which we have also outlined in high level detail below.
NHSEI’s Advancing Mental Health Equalities Strategy summarises the core actions that need to be taken to bridge the gaps for communities fairing worse than others in mental health services. It sits alongside the NHS Mental Health Implementation Plan 2019/20 – 2023/24 and is also an important element of overall NHS plans to accelerate action to address health inequalities in the next stage of responding to COVID-19.
- NHSEI commits to take a range of actions across three workstreams to support the delivery of the strategy. These include:
- Supporting local health systems
- Addressing workforce concerns
- Improving data and information flow into national datasets
