This page highlights the importance of improving access to primary care services and interventions for people with serious mental illness.
We need to provide accessible services for people with serious mental illness (SMI) which meet their needs, clearly monitoring and addressing health outcomes.
Recommended actions to take
- Commission and provide reasonable adjustments within primary care for SMI population, for example, increased appointment times.
- Deliver interventions using a personalised approach that optimises social prescribing and community resources.
