Abstract

This briefing paper summarises key findings from three rapid evidence reviews (Transforming mental health services; International policy guidance and response to COVID recovery; International learnings on mental health plans, policies and implementation) commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation to help support the development of Northern Ireland’s ten year mental health strategy. It highlights some of the national and international evidence, offers examples of best practice and innovation and may be of interest to those responsible for developing the strategy. International best practice suggests that the relationship between physical and mental health has to be seamless in the delivery of care. Making every contact count with individuals to help embed a holistic approach to mental and physical health is crucial in trying to close the mortality gap in mental illness.
