Policy and reports
Read on for our latest policy reports
For the first time, this report sets out a clear picture of the
significant gap in access to health services for people severely
affected by mental illness.
Our report based on a survey of 117 staff members who work in supported housing services for people with mental illness reveals 84% believed that the Government’s funding proposals would have seen their service close.
Our report explores some of the reasons that assessments are a
major source of anxiety, trauma, and harm for people severely affected by mental illness.
Rethink Mental Illness was commissioned by the Mental Health Alliance to conduct the largest survey into the 34 year old Act. The message from the research was clear: the Act is no longer fit for purpose and there is a growing need for it to be reformed.
Our policy team work to ensure the rights of people severely affected by mental illness are respected and enhanced.
