Improving outcomes for people in mental health crisis: a rapid synthesis of the evidence for available models of care (01/16)
Crisis Concordat was established to improve outcomes for people experiencing a mental health crisis. The Crisis Concordat sets out four stages of the crisis care pathway: (1) access to support before crisis point; (2) urgent and emergency access to crisis care; (3) quality treatment and care in crisis; and (4) promoting recovery. The objectives of the research were to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the models of care for improving outcomes at each stage of the care pathway. The results are published in the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Journals Library.
