Mental Health Policy

MHPF brings the voice of mental health service providers into discussions regarding national policy and strategy.

We work with our membership to influence government, policy makers and commissioners, to ensure that policy is informed by the experience and view point of frontline workers, organisations and the people how use services

We are currently working with our members in the following areas:

  • No health without mental health and Closing the Gap
  • Housing provision for people with mental health needs
  • Care Act 2014 and implications of the national health and care reforms
  • Crisis Care and health based places of safety
  • Choice and access of psychological therapies
  • Mental Capacity Act and changes to Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards
