To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many of the recommendations in his Department's Future in Mind report of March 2015 have been implemented; and for what reasons the remaining recommendations have not yet been implemented.
The Government has accepted and initiated the vision set out in Future in Mind in full. The report sets out ambitions for areas of work rather than recommendations of specific policy to be implemented. However, since the publication of the report, the Government has introduced the first ever mental health waiting times, boosted children’s mental health funding by £1.4 billion directed to Local Transformation Plans in every area in the country. We have also made good progress in enhancing existing maternal, perinatal and early years health services, expanding Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies and eradicating the practice of using police cells for under-18s in mental health crisis.
