Clinical Guidelines in Mental Health I: the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health

  • Tim Kendall (a1), Steve Pilling (a2), Catherine Pettinari (a3) and Craig Whittington (a4)
Extract

The first national clinical guideline for the National Health Service (NHS) was produced by the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health (NCCMH) for the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and launched in December 2002. That the first guideline to emerge was a guideline in mental health was important. Furthermore, that the guideline was about the treatment of the most severe form of mental illness, schizophrenia, has drawn a great deal of attention to the plight of people with mental health problems, both within NICE, its Citizens Council and Partners Council, and in the medical press (Battacharya & Gough, 2002; Mayor, 2002; Hargreaves, 2003).
