What More Does London Need to do to Enable People in Mental Health Crisis to Appropriately Attend Emergency Departments?

At this event, system leaders, clinicians and patients heard about the current challenges in the system from service users, carers, health and social care staff, London Ambulance Service and the police. Attendees discussed and debated ideas and potential solutions for how the whole system can improve the experience of those of all ages in mental health crisis.
