Local Implementation Team

A broad group of stakeholders in mental health in the UK, including health professionals, carers, and service users who meet to plan how to best provide mental health services in their area. The LIT may work with those who commission mental health services—currently, primary care trusts (PCTs) or, possibly in the future, GPs.
