The New Savoy Partnership was a unique coalition of organizations that came together in 2007, and again in 2010, to persuade government to fully recognize the value of psychological therapies provided free on the NHS to improved national wellbeing. That core mission – universal access - is carried forwards today by the We Need To Talk coalition led by Mind (see our Useful Links page).
In 2007 the New Savoy partners also founded an annual conference, The New Savoy Conference – Psychological Therapies in the NHS, which remains the highlight event of the mental health calendar. Each year an unrivalled line-up of international experts gathers together with professionals and clinicians from all key disciplines, representatives of mental health charities and service user spokespersons, leading NHS providers, commissioners, researchers and UK policy makers to debate the challenge of implementing evidence based practice.
This website hosts our archive of conference speeches and presentations and also provides links to ongoing projects and campaigns.
