Jargon buster: National Institute for Mental Health in England (NIMHE).

What is it?  

Part of the Care Services Improvement Partnership and sponsored by the DoH, NIMHE is responsible for supporting implementation of positive change in mental health and mental health services.  

How does it do this? 

Work is delivered through eight development centres in England with programme areas supported by their own networks, groups and teams. Programmes include primary care, with initiatives on commissioning and developing effective partnerships and developing a primary care user perspective. 

Other resources?  

NIMHE’s online knowledge community, accessible to anyone with an interest or responsibility in mental health, is a shared space where users can exchange knowledge, information and experiences relating to any aspect of mental health.  

Where can I find further information?
