The Care Quality Commission recently found that “Many people found that help was not available when they needed it, care was not centred around their needs and staff did not always treat them with respect or compassion when they were in crisis.” CQC, State of Care 2015/16, October 2016
“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.
