Personal Health Budgets in Mental Health

This project aims to collect service user and carer views about personal health budgets (PHBs) in mental health. PHB is a new area of policy development. Through this project we hope to find out what people's views are about the usefulness of  PHBs, what support, help and information people will need to makes use of this, and what some of the hopes and anxieties are about PHBs and personalisation in general.


We have completed an online survey and six focus groups around the country, involving around 160 people in total. The report is being prepared and is expected to be published in Spring. The project is commissioned by the NHS Conferedation and is based at the Mental Health Foundation. For more information, contact: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
