Researchable questions to support evidence-based mental health policy concerning adult mental illness

  • Graham Thornicroft, Jonathan Bindman, David Goldberg, Kevin Gournay and Peter Huxley (a1)...
Extract

Policy makers find much mental health research irrelevant to their concerns. What types of research would directly assist those who formulate policy? The two purposes of this paper are (i) to identify important gaps in completed research, particularly in relation to the National Service Framework (NSF) for Mental Health (Department of Health, 1999a) and the NHS Plan (NHS Confederation, 2001); and (ii) to translate these gaps into researchable questions that can contribute to a debate about the future research agenda for general adult mental health in England.
