Abstract/Book Review

New York mayor Bill de Blasio’s new programme of mental health spending is impressive in its scale, leadership and depth of resources, and could provide a lesson for central and local government leaders in the UK. The programme, Thrive, comes with a mental health roadmap [pdf] for the city that states its ambitious aims: “It is our goal to not only reduce the toll of mental illness, but also promote mental health and protect New Yorkers’ resiliency, self-esteem, family strength and joy.” Having spent a week in New York City as part of a small study group from London, it was impressive to see just how rapidly the programme has mobilised since its launch in November 2015. We spoke to key officials in the health and education departments and the New York police department.
