The London Mental Health in Integrated Care Systems (MHICS) programme is a London-wide programme that strives to make the case for, and to understand the value of, mental health within an Integrated Care System (ICS).

The NHS Long Term Plan requires Integrated Care Systems to be in place by April 2021; the MHICS programme is working to articulate the value of mental health within emerging Integrated Care Systems, so that mental health is represented alongside physical health within them.

The projects that we have been working on include:

Outcome measures:

Mental Health in the ICS Implementation Tool

London’s Mental Health System Stocktake and Modelling

London Mental Health Dashboard
