Abstract

This scoping review has been commissioned by the National Collaborative Commissioning Unit (NCCU) as part of a wider body of work exploring the prevalence and type of mental health interventions within Primary Care and, the gaps that exist in mental health intervention.

A scoping review is “a preliminary assessment of potential size and scope of available research literature. It aims to identify nature and extent of research evidence (usually including ongoing research)” (Grant & Booth, 2009). As such, this review is not a comprehensive examination of literature as would be found in a systematic review but instead aims to conceptualise the boundaries of the review topic; mental health interventions in primary care settings.

The aim of this scoping review is twofold: to explore the possible impacts of establishing mental health services in primary care settings and to consider whether there is sufficient evidence to carry out a full literature review on this topic.
