2. In November 2003, the King's Fund published the findings from its 18-month inquiry into London's mental health care. London's State of Mind: King's Fund Mental Health Inquiry 2003, by Ros Levenson, Angela Greatley and Janice Robinson, warned that the Government's pledge to modernise mental health services is failing in London. It said that while there are many examples of good services, London remains reliant on admitting people with mental health problems to hospital rather than helping them stay in the community. Media can obtain free copies of the report by contacting the King's Fund media and public relations office on 020 7307 2585 or 07831 554927.

We carry out research, policy analysis and development activities, working on our own, in partnerships, and through grants. We are a major resource to people working in health, offering leadership and education courses; seminars and workshops; publications; information and library services; and conference and meeting facilities.
