The crisis pathway has expanded and developed over the last 2 years with significant investment in line with the Long Term Plan. This includes a 24/7 crisis line and home treatment, self-referral options for service users, and older adult crisis services, as well as crisis cafes, run in partnership with BLMKMIND.

The pathway was highly commended in the Positive Practice in Mental Health awards in 2021 for its work in developing the pathway.
