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 relies on informed, evidence-based treatment with the ability to assess need, monitor and evaluate treatment pathways, engagement and outcomes. Data modeling, good quality collection and data utility is the cornerstone of providing a high standard of care.
