The King’s Fund has launched An alternative guide to mental health care in England. This short animation is designed to help people understand mental health services in England and how they integrate with physical health, social care and other public services. It also reminds viewers of the importance of co-designing all health and care services to meet physical and mental health needs - and how all health professionals have a part to play in helping people get the right support at the right time.
