We recognise that community mental health services need to evolve and expand. Through the NHS Long Term Plan, we have committed to investing £975 extra million per year by 2023/24 in transformed models of integrated primary and community mental health care. These new models will be based on the Community Mental Health Framework for Adults and Older Adults, published in September 2019, which provides a blueprint for change.
