Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


In May 2020, the Department of Health published the Mental Health Action Plan for Northern Ireland. It identified the development of a new 10-year strategy as a key priority and one of the other objectives of the Action Plan was to “Consider and enhance the experience when a person is experiencing a mental health crisis, in particular in relation to emergency care.” The aim of this Review was therefore to gather and evaluate the available evidence and perspectives in order to make recommendations for mental health crisis services. The Review Team, led by Christine Bateson, was identified and supported by the Department of Health but its members were independent of and external to the Department of Health.
