The Bradley Report five years on: An independent review of progress to date and priorities for further development – Centre for Mental Health – 10 June 2014

The Bradley Report – April 2009

News release: Five years of solid progress since Bradley Report must be sustained by local and national action, says Independent Commission – 10 June 2014

“The five years since the Bradley Report was published have seen concerted action to improve support for people with mental health problems and those with learning difficulties in the criminal justice system, but this will need to be sustained for at least another five years to put the vision into practice nationwide, says a report published today by Centre for Mental Health.

The Bradley Report five years on is the final report of an independent commission chaired by Lord Bradley to review progress since 2009 and identify priorities for further development.

It finds that the commitment of successive governments to the development of liaison and diversion services in police stations and courts has enabled solid progress to be made in putting these vital services in place across the country. But successful implementation of liaison and diversion will depend on local services offering effective and engaging support to people of all ages who are diverted.

The report looks at what needs to be done to put Lord Bradley’s vision into practice across the country. Plans to extend liaison and diversion services nationwide by 2017 are essential to ensure that people with mental health problems or with learning difficulties are identified as early as possible and given the support they need. They will only be effective, however, if local health, social care, housing and other vital services are able to help people who are diverted, many of whom have multiple and complex needs that existing services have been unable to meet.”

Barriers to employment: What works for people with mental health problems – Centre for Mental Health [UK] – 3 October 2013

“For most of us, having paid work is essential for wellbeing and financial security. But, as this briefing finds, for many people who require some support to get into work, especially those with mental health problems, the right to employment support is not being upheld and numerous barriers remain. The briefing looks at what interventions work as well, where gaps exist in evidence-based interventions as well as some current models of supported employment and urges commissioners and providers of both employment services and health and social care to make support into employment a priority.”

The economic and social costs of mental health problems in 2009/10 – Centre for Mental Health (UK)

The economic and social costs of mental health problems in 2009/10 – Centre for Mental Health (UK)

“A Centre for Mental Health policy paper published in 2003 estimated that the economic and social costs of mental health problems in England in the financial year 2002/03 amounted to £77.4 billion (Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health, 2003).

Using the same methodology, a straightforward updating of this figure suggests that the aggregate cost of mental health problems in England increased to £105.2 billion in 2009/10. This updated analysis shows that mental ill health should continue to be a priority issue for public policy.”  … continues
