The government has started to focus on the importance of mental health facilities over the last decade with new commitments in April 2015 being that treatment within 6 weeks for 75% of people referred to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme, with 95% of people being treated within 18 weeks, treatment within 2 weeks for more than 50% of people experiencing a first episode of psychosis.
