Charities call for rethink on mental health services
More than £500m could be saved if mental health services in England were run more efficiently, a report says.
Better community support, cutting unnecessary hospital stays and reducing sickness absence can all help cut costs, say policy experts.
The NHS has been asked to find £20bn of efficiency savings by 2014.
