AN ALTERNATIVE GUIDE TO MENTAL HEALTH CARE IN ENGLAND

on October 18, 2015

AN ALTERNATIVE GUIDE TO MENTAL HEALTH CARE IN ENGLAND… The King’s Fund 08/10/15Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. The experience will be different for each of us, as will the type of support we need. But what mental health services are there? And how do they fit in with other health and public services? The King’s Fund has produced an animated film to help people to understand more about mental health issues and the possible care pathways. Released to coincide with World Mental Health Day on Saturday 10 October 2015, the animation was produced with input from three experts by experience and advice from a mental health nurse and a senior colleague from a mental health charity. The three stories feature Asif who suffers from diabetes which leads to deep depression; Alicia, a young girl who hears voices and goes into crisis; Mary, an elderly lady with dementia who eventually goes into a care home.The King’s Fund recognises that the experience of the three characters in the film will not reflect those of all mental health services users. Everyone’s needs and experiences are different, and the availability and quality of services vary across the country. The aim was to create something that would demonstrate the range of services available but also highlight some of the issues that need to be addressed.To view the animation go to the Home Page of the King’s Fund website:http://www.kingsfund.org.uk and click on ‘Watch the Animation’
