Community care plans and the Mental Illness Specific Grant: Recent government policy and legislation

  • Jeff Doodson (a1) and Sara Davies (a2)
Abstract

Mental Illness Specific Grant was made available to local authorities for the care of people with severe mental illness, as part of care in the community. Although only a small sum of money it has had the effect of giving the newly created community care planning system a boost start. It has enabled professionals from all agencies to see tangible benefits from collaborative working. MISG is time limited but has already shown that health and social services can work together to make a reality of community care.
