This King’s Fund report looks at how mental health services have been transformed over the past 30 years, from an acute to a community based model. It’s based on a literature review and workshops with people who have experienced these changes first hand. It explains how lessons learned from changes in mental health services can be used to help transfer physical health services from the hospital to the community.
