Our vision and recommendations
For you to have the crisis care you need, when you need it, we need to campaign for change in four areas:
Humanity - so that you are treated in a warm, caring and respectful way.
Commissioning for people's needs - so that services meet the needs we all share such as for care, safety, respect and someone to talk to, and also recognise the diversity of our needs and circumstances.
Choice and control - so that you are trusted to understand your own needs and have more choice and more say over treatment and support.
A shared approach to healing and recovery - so that the skills of everyone involved in crisis care are used to best effect - professionals, support workers and peer workers who have themselves experienced mental health problems.
