Chaired by Jim Symington of the Mental Health Crisis Implementation Team 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 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, continuing with case studies from the NHS, Police, and Ambulance Services, commissioners and perspectives from service users. 

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.
