Speeding up the best in health and care, together

Mental Health

We believe that good Mental Health is critical to everyone’s health and wellbeing. The HIN aims to ensure that Mental Health is embedded in all our health programmes; Healthy Ageing, Diabetes and Stroke Prevention, MSK, and Alcohol in line with the Five Year Forward View for mental health.

Additionally, the HIN is playing a key role to encourage and support the spread and adoption of evidence-based good practice in Mental Health through our networks and partnerships, and by working with a wide range of stakeholders in south London.
