Your mental health crisis Declaration

A mental health crisis Declaration is an agreement between local services and agencies to commit to improving the care and support for people in crisis. Your Declaration statement should meet the commitments in the national Crisis Care Concordat and must be signed by all the local organisations that could be involved in the care of someone in mental health crisis.

Your Declaration statement needs to cover:

  • Access to support before crisis point
  • Urgent and emergency access to crisis care
  • Quality of treatment and care when in crisis
  • Recovery and staying well, preventing future crises
