Crisis Pathway, Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
In 2017, Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) working with Mind, service users, and carers developed and designed an out-of-hours provision for people experiencing mental health crisis; Crisis Café. Their shared vision of responsive and outstanding mental health care empowered NHFT and Mind to collaborate successfully combining resources to provide open access to support those in crisis 5pm-10pm every day. They have supported hope, control and opportunity for their service users, reduced costs and prevented strain on traditional emergency care services.
