Service user Workshop on Mental Health Crisis Care – 21 April

Tell us your views on how we can improve London’s mental health crisis care. 
2pm – 4pm Thursday 21st April, ORTUS learning and events centre, 82 – 96 Grove Lane, Camberwell, SE5 8SN
Healthy London Partnership (HLP)would like to invite service users to participate in a workshop focused on improving mental health crisis care.
In London there has been a 9% increase in section 136 detentions over the past year, this is occurring whilst there continues to be significant issues in the variability and quality of care delivered along the pathway. To improve the consistency and quality of care, HLP is working with London’s crisis care system to develop a Health-Based Place of Safety specification and s136 care pathway. These documents will set the minimum standard of care services should offer ensuring the quality of care the service user experiences is of a consistent high standard.
A key part of improving London’s mental health crisis care system is to ensure current services and care meets the needs and expectations of service users. We would like service users to attend our workshop to help us develop the Health-Based Place of Safety specification and wider s136 pathway. This will be an opportunity for service users to tell us what’s important for improving crisis care. This may include views on areas such as: 
  • What type of environment would make you feel safe and supported in a crisis?
  • How can staff best support you?
  • What should be available to you during a mental health crisis?
  • How can crisis care plans be improved? 
  • What support should be available to you following your care?
To register your interest email or call 01138 070082.
