"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, 3 August 2015
NHS England have a key role in supporting delivery of the transformational mental health crisis care model described in the Crisis Care Concordat and in ensuring full alignment with the urgent and emergency care review. The Crisis Care Concordat set system partners the challenge of realising transformation changes to mental health crisis care.
This conference, chaired by Jim Symington of the Mental Health Crisis Implementation Team 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 a year on.
The conference will open with an update on progress against NHS England’s commitments from Sarah Khan, Deputy Head of Mental Health at NHS England.
The conference will look at delivering improved mental health crisis care at a local level, what makes a good crisis plan, acting early to prevent people reaching crisis point, delivering effective liaison mental health services, commissioning mental health services, working in partnership with the police to improve care for those in crisis, measuring outcomes and quality in crisis care and making the concordat a local reality. There will be a focus on what helps people in crisis from the user perspective and ensuring parity of esteem.
