Mental health commissioning 'shortcut' may cause disaster12th November 2009

The group of academics say that mental health services are particularly vulnerable to cuts and significant disinvestment would deliver immediate, medium and long term pain for the NHS and other public services and have a negative impact on people experiencing mental illness and their carers and families.
