NICE has been asked to develop guidance on rehabilitation services for people with complex needs. The first of these guidelines will be on rehabilitation in people with severe and enduring mental illness. People with complex and ongoing mental illness often benefit from specialist rehabilitation services to support them in moving towards living safely and independently in the community.
We need people with lived experience, their carers and advocates to help us develop the guideline. People who are interested in helping with this project can see our website for more details or contact firstname.lastname@example.org , 0161 870 3022
