The National Institute for Mental Health in England (NIMHE) is part of the Modernisation Agency, which is part of the Department, until 31 March 2005. The Secretary of State for Health is ultimately accountable.

From 1 April 2005, the NIMHE will become part of the care services improvement partnership, hosted by the prescription pricing authority, and will be accountable to the care services directorate in the Department.

Each NIMHE regional development centre is hosted by a separate National health service organisation and is accountable, in the first instance, to the boards of their employing organisations, then to the NIMHE and ultimately to the Secretary of State for the central programme work they carry out.
