1 Effective Services for people in mental health crisis The Respite and Wellbeing House Swindon Mind – Sub Plenary Session WSP2 – Effective Services for people in mental health crisis Charter 1 Swindon Mind – The Respite and Wellbeing House

2 The Respite and Wellbeing House The types of Crisis House The Non-Clinical Model – successful? A brief history of Swindon Mind’s Crisis House The Respite and Wellbeing House – evidence? The Mental Health Crisis Care Concordat

3 The Crisis House Model These are community-based crisis services that offer residential support and include: Clinical crisis houses They provide residential services with staff onsite through the night and have a high level of clinical staff involved in providing onsite care. Specialist crisis houses These services share similar features to Clinical crisis houses but are aimed at specific groups such as women and people with early psychosis. Crisis team beds These services provide a small number of beds aimed at short stays and are fully integrated with CRHT teams. Non-clinical alternatives Mainly managed by the voluntary sector with few clinical staff but many have also forged strong links with CRHT teams. [accessed 12 th Oct 2014]

4 The Non-Clinical Model “One of the world’s great mysteries is why we don’t have more [crisis houses]” Mind Guide to Crisis Services 2012

5 The Non-Clinical Model – unsuccessful? Crisis houses however will be relevant for a relatively restricted population and may have modest benefits if home treatment is properly equipped and fully functional. Where crisis houses have been unsuccessful, this is where staffing is low and remote from inpatient units. [accessed 12 th Oct 2014]

6 The Clinical Model – successful? The investigation also found: NHS trust admitted patients to hospital without beds being available as no beds could be found in the public or private sectors The NHS continues to spend millions of pounds sending severely ill patients to private hospitals, often hundreds of miles from home Children and young people are being admitted to adult psychiatric wards due to nationwide pressures on specialist children’s beds Pressures to free-up beds are leading to patients being discharged too early, social workers warn. At one trust bed pressures meant one patient was admitted eight times in 12 months Although the Royal College of Psychiatrists recommends occupancy levels of 85%, individual wards were running at up to 138%. Andy McNicoll on October 16, 2013 in Mental Health, Mental Health Act, The state of mental healthcare Mental health crisis services in England are “unsafe” and delivering substandard care to acutely unwell adults and children, an investigation by Community Care and BBC News has revealed.

7 The Non-Clinical Model –the evidence for Non- Clinical Crisis Houses have been found to be cheaper than standard Psychiatric services (Byford & Sharac, 2002: Fenton et al. 1998, 2002: Hawthorne et al. 1999) Patients who use crisis houses have been found to spend less time in Crisis houses than in standard wards (Byford & Sharac, 2010) Once admitted to a Crisis house, it has been found that there is a reduction in use of Psychiatric units and A & E departments (Hodgson, Carr & Wealleans, 2002) Patients who have used Crisis houses have shown to have an improvement in Psychological functioning and a decrease in symptoms (Meiser-Steadman, Howard & Cutting, 2006) Compared with standard care, Patients were more satisfied with Crisis house services and felt less coercion and negative pressure in Crisis houses (Osborn et al 2010) Those who use Crisis houses tend to admit themselves voluntarily, less likely to need 24 hour care or require supervision (Howard et al. 2008)
