Crisis Care Profile

This profile has been produced to support an intelligence driven approach to mental health crisis care planning.   It collates and analyses a wide range of publically available data on associated prevalence of mental health crisis, risk factors, access to care, treatment, and outcomes. It offers planners, providers and stakeholders the means to profile their area and benchmark against similar populations.

Profile structure - data are presented under the domains of Understanding need, Access to support before crisis point, Urgent and emergency access to crisis care, Quality of treatment and care when in crisis, and Recovery and staying well.  Domains group data by geography (Clinical Commissioning Group, Local Authority, Region or Ambulance trust) and then order data by topic (e.g. primary care followed by secondary care).

Profile content - data are drawn from many sources and vary by time period, population and presentation of values. Care should be taken with interpretation. Detailed metadata and any caveats are set out in the Definitions section.
Data quality - data items are included if viewed as robust, of sufficient quality, or offer an important element that could not be otherwise gained.  Each indicator has been assessed and labelled with its quality rank.
