HSJ has launched a new fortnightly expert briefing for subscribers covering the mental health sector.

It is an exciting time for the mental health sector, but also a crucial time: the subject has never been more in the public eye, never higher on the political agenda; but with commissioners and providers feeling the pinch there is a risk that plans will be implemented fully.

This briefing, by HSJ’s mental health correspondent Joe Gammie, will explore how the sector is performing, where the cash is going and whether the plans come to fruition.
