Research on Severe Mental Illness

The NHS National Institute for Health Research has released a report on support for people living with SMI.

Forward Thinking provides an overview of recent published research, funded by the NIHR, on support for people living with SMI. These studies address particular uncertainties and evidence gaps identified by those working in and using these services. It also highlights research currently taking place to inform the support and care of people with severe mental illness.

"We aim to not only help people with SMI quickly access evidence-based, NICE-concordant mental health care; we also want them to access NICE-concordant physical health care, to secure gainful and meaningful employment and for services across a range of sectors to  work together to help improve their clinical and social outcomes in such a way that they have the same opportunities to live healthy, full and fulfilling lives like anyone else." 
Karen Turner, Director for Mental Health, NHS England
