Working together to improve patient care: how PCNs are working in partnership to support people’s mental health

04 / 02 / 2021

Mental health disorders are one of the common causes of morbidity in England. Nine out of ten adults with mental health problems are supported in primary care and around 40 per cent of GP appointments involve mental health.

Primary care plays a key role in supporting patients’ mental health and wellbeing, so it has become a priority for many primary care networks (PCNs).

This briefing was developed jointly by the NHS Confederation’s Mental Health Network and PCN Network and provides examples of three models of partnership working that are currently underway in primary care to support mental health at place level.
