Beyond Places of Safety scheme – Department of Health
The Department of Health has launched a £15 million fund to better support people at risk of experiencing a mental health crisis.
The Beyond Places of Safety scheme will improve support services for those needing urgent and emergency mental healthcare. This includes conditions such as psychosis, bipolar disorder, and personality disorders that could cause people to be a risk to themselves or others.
The scheme will focus on:
- preventing people from reaching crisis point in the first place
- helping to develop new approaches to support people who experience a mental health crisis
The scheme is now open to receive bids from Crisis Care Concordat leads. Final bids must be submitted by 21 January 2018.
