Wider determinants of health such as housing, schooling and employment, are key to deliver the transformation needed in mental health services and care. Sustainability and Transformation plans are seen as a key delivery vehicle for improved mental health services and advanced plans provide strong examples of collaboration across health and care systems can benefit people with mental health needs. A collective focus will benefit not just people who use services, their families and communities, but benefit the NHS itself and drive a more equal, balanced and sustainable health and care system. If the system’s complexity and fragmentation are to be overcome improved commissioning of services at the local level will be key. Our conference agenda will share personal experiences of mental health users, provide an invaluable update on the road map to improved mental health care, and highlight real, practical examples of service transformation and new approaches to care.
