No such formal assessment has been made.

However, we remain committed to investing in mental health services in the National Health Service in England by at least £2.3 billion a year by March 2024, as set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. This includes significant investment to the transformation of community mental health services, which aims to increase access to high quality care and transform care pathways to provide care in the community for people with severe mental illness, including bipolar disorder.
