Improving access to mental health support for people experiencing multiple disadvantage.
Mental ill health is both a cause and a consequence of multiple disadvantage. Getting help with mental health can be an essential part of the journey towards a fulfilling life. But for people affected by multiple disadvantage accessing appropriate mental health support can be challenging.
Addressing this is a key strategic priority for the Fulfilling Lives programme. The latest report from the programme explores the barriers to getting help with mental health faced by people experiencing multiple disadvantage, examines the response of the Fulfilling Lives partnerships and presents evidence and learning from five in-depth case studies.
The Fulfilling Lives partnerships present their recommendations for how change can be achieved. The report draws on independent evaluation findings and insights from the Systems Change Action Network (SCAN) – a group representing the programme leads from each of the Fulfilling Lives partnerships.
