London has high levels of mental illness and the diversity of its population also means that people experience its impact and related health services in different ways.
Formerly operating as the London Development Centre and most recently as part of NHS Commissioning Support for London, the mental health programme is committed to providing advice, management and support for service redesign, improvement and development.
The mental health programme is also currently managing the mental health models of care project on behalf of London. The models of care were launched in June 2011.
As well as working within the NHS, we maintain strong working relationships with other government, private and voluntary sector organisations. However, the maintenance of strong partnerships with service users and carers remains integral to all we do.
