“Our thematic review Right here, right now concluded that far too many people in a mental health crisis have poor experiences of care and do not receive basic respect, warmth and compassion. This is unsafe and, when compared with the services available to people with physical health problems, unfair.” Care Quality Commission
“I know that this focus on crisis care is having a positive effect... the local action plans you have led and published to date mean that every area is now in a good position to progress the work that still needs to be done to maintain momentum and deliver a lasting step change in the quality and provision of crisis services and responses” Alastair Burt MP, Minister of State for Community and Social Care Maintaining Momentum in Crisis Services
This conference focuses on improving mental health crisis care and delivering a new model of mental health crisis services, and meeting the ambitions of the Mental Health Crisis Concordat. The conference will open with a national update on delivering the new Mental Health Taskforce recommendations on crisis services, followed by progress against NHS England’s commitments. The conference will then continue with case studies from the NHS, Mental Health Vanguard Sites, Police, and Ambulance Services, commissioners and perspectives from service users.
