Primary Care Mental Health Forum

The Forum is a collaboration hosted jointly between the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP). It operates primarily as a virtual Forum, made up of members from the RCGP, RCPsych and other organisations with an interest in mental health in primary care.

  • guide and promote good practice in mental health care across generalist and specialist health care services
  • influence and support the work of practitioners at every level of service and in particular those at the fronting of service delivery
  • act as an expert resource to organisations with an interest in mental health
  • build and support collaborative ventures between organisations
  • influence national policy and strategy
  • collaborate with service user and carer organisations to improve the patient’s experience of mental health care
  • influence and support research, audit and quality improvement initiative
