A guide to understanding adult education and mental health, and how they relate to each other: Briefing Sheet

Published in 2005, this briefing sheet sought to help support the learning and skills and mental health sectors to overcome the barriers to their effective partnership working by presenting and overview of
government policies and initiatives that had shaped both sectors in the preceding ten years.

It also included a description of some of the more important organisations and strategies that impact on both sectors; and, definitions of some of the key and most commonly used terminology

The rationale for partnership working and the need for different sectors to understand the policy context for joint working still applies  but  re-organisation of both sectors, subsequent policy developments and a change of government mean that the content is now (in 2011) largely out of date.
