Govconnects 3rd annual Mental Health conference and 12 month engagement period will continue its contribution to increase significantly the availability and quality of care and treatment for people with mental health problems - to improve their outcomes and wellbeing but also to tackle the wider costs of mental ill health to the health service and society as a whole.

Mental Health 2019 - Achieving the Five Year Forward View will give attendees the opportunity to engage with key personnel from delivery partners and national stakeholder organisations promoting collaboration across sectors, working together at national and local level, discussing how they will be held to account for meeting the timeframes and for using the funding in the most effective way.
