“The last place anyone experiencing a mental health crisis should be is in a busy A&E department let alone a police cell.” Jackie Doyle-Price, Minister for Mental Health and Inequalities 25th May 2018

“CQC identified several areas of concern from their inspections including…. Poor access and lengthy waiting times for specialist services and a lack of 24-hour crisis care.” Maintaining momentum: driving improvements in mental health care, Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman, March 2018

“People facing a crisis should have access to mental health care 7 days a week and 24 hours a day in the same way that they are able to get access to urgent physical health care. Getting the right care in the right place at the right time is vital.” The Mental Health Taskforce Strategy

“There is considerable room for improvement in crisis care services, with nearly four in 10 services being rated as requires improvement (35%) or inadequate (4%) for safety.”  Care Quality Commission 2017

“Nowhere within mental health care is the issue of parity more important than in the provision of urgent and emergency care for people experiencing a mental health crisis.” Professor Tim Kendall National Clinical Director for Mental Health 

The National Mental Health Crisis Summit takes a practical case study based approach to improving services and outcomes for people with mental health conditions requiring urgent and crisis care. The day will focus on improving services for mental health crisis care, through learning from organisations that have succeeded in addressing the challenge of improving access and delivering an effective mental health crisis pathway in line with the national concordat. Case Studies of Beyond Places of Safety Crisis services will be presented following the Department of Health additional funding focusing on timely support to relieve pressures on hospitals by reducing unnecessary visits to A&E for those experiencing a crisis.
