Psychiatrists set out a vision for better mental health services

The World Psychiatric Association has published a 43-page analysis of the future development of clinical services for patients with mental health problems.

Six areas were identified by a 41-strong commission established by the World Psychiatric Association, an international umbrella group of national psychiatric societies, and the journal Lancet Psychiatry.

They include: changes in the patient population and advances in the treatments available; how psychiatry fits into wider health-care systems; the role of psychiatry in society; the future of mental health law, including the rights of mental health patients; how digital psychiatry might improve future mental health; and how psychiatrists should be trained in the future.
