Mental health crisis care toolkit

Our mental health crisis care toolkit has been developed to support London’s crisis care teams to provide high quality and consistent care across the capital. The toolkit is designed to support local training to all NHS, local authority and police staff involved in the s136 pathway.

The latest toolkit includes:

  • training materials from multiagency sessions delivered to almost 950 staff across the capital between 2017-2019. These sessions focussed on the Mental Health Act, the Mental Capacity Act and the alignment of local policies to the pan-London s136 pathway. The training has received excellent feedback with 94-95% satisfaction across the sessions and 86-89% of attendees reporting that the training would make a difference to the way they did their job.

  • roles and responsibility briefings for staff along the s136 pathway. These briefings summarise the key points from London’s s136 pathway guidance
  • Information on the process for safe handover of voluntary mental health crisis patients brought into the emergency department (ED) by the police. This process was developed through partnership working between London’s Urgent and Emergency care system and the Metropolitan Police Service. The handover process was rolled out across the capital on 1 March 2018 with all three of London’s police forces involved, and was recognised through a Health Service Journal Patient Safety Award in 2018.
