Welcome to the mental health integrated care pathways toolkit

An integrated care pathway (or ICP) is a person-centred and evidence-based framework. It tells multidisciplinary and multi-agency care providers, people using services, and their carers what should be expected at any point along the journey of care.

ICPs allow services to compare planned care with what was actually delivered. This information can be used to develop services and improve the patient journey.

This toolkit was developed primarily for service providers working within, or in partnership with mental health services, across all age ranges, in Scotland.

In this site you will find the national ICP standards and their evidence base along with contacts, practical help and resources. These will support you to develop and implement mental health ICPs in your local area.

Bookmark us, and visit the toolkit regularly as it will be updated with the latest ICP news and new resources as they become available.

Get started - browse our child and adolescent or adult and older adult toolkits using the jigsaw links to the left or use the headings along the top navigation bar.
