Mental health crisis care: Local area inspection reports

  • Public

As part of Right here, right now, our review of people’s experiences of help, care and support during a mental health crisis, we carried out inspections in selected local authority areas.

We looked at the quality of support and care given to people experiencing a mental health crisis, as well as how organisations and agencies worked together to provide this help.

The inspections examined different ways people access mental health crisis care. We looked at people who experience a mental health crisis and who:

  • Attend accident and emergency departments (with a particular focus on people who self-harm)
  • Require access to and support from specialist mental health services
  • Are detained under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act (MHA)

The findings from these inspections have been used in Right here, right now. Reports for twelve of the local inspection areas can also be downloaded below.
