Mental health care pathways

We have developed guidance for NHS England and NICE, to support delivery of the ambitions set out in The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health:

  • evidence-based mental health care pathways that promote timely and equal access to effective treatment and health care
  • guidance for commissioners and service providers on how the pathways can be implemented and the benchmarks achieved.

For each topic, we developed detailed implementation guidance with accompanying appendices and helpful resources.

You can also access a short format guide, which provides a summary of the pathway and benchmarks, and an overview of the policy and strategic context for each topic.
