Abstract

Achieving better access to 24/7 urgent and emergency mental health care – Part 2: Implementing the evidence-based treatment pathway for rrgent and emergency liaison mental health services for adults and older adults.

NHS England is working with partners to develop evidence-based treatment pathways to ensure high-quality urgent and emergency mental health care is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24/7) to people who are experiencing a mental health crisis.

Guidance will be available on:

  • Urgent and emergency mental health response from blue light services (e.g. police. Ambulance) – Part 1
  • Urgent and emergency 24/7 community adult mental health response (e.g. crisis teams, crisis lines, primary care) – Part 3
  • Urgent and emergency 24/7 mental health response for children and young people (e.g. acute hospital liaison and community crisis response) – Part 4
