The Royal College of Psychiatrists has consistently highlighted the importance of social inclusion for people with mental health problems and Learning Disabilities.

The College’s aspiration is borrowed from the Equalities Review: that we wish “to live in a society which provides for each individual to realise his or her own potential to the fullest”.  This aspiration can inform our view of approaches to mental health services in the twenty-first century.
