English mental health services 'best in Europe'

A report on mental health services in Europe has concluded that services in England are among some of the best available. The World Health Organization report looked at funding levels, staffing, primary and secondary provision and mechanisms for monitoring human rights. England and Wales were the only places to offer outreach support to all people with mental disorders and one of only three places - together with Germany and Luxembourg - that enabled people to access early intervention. England was the only country to provide a network of specialist early intervention teams to target young people with the early stages of psychotic disorders.
