We write reports on specific areas of mental health care, commissioned by other organisations:
'All Age Crisis Care: Recommendations and Positive Practice' makes recommendations for the improvement and delivery of high-quality mental health care. It describes exemplar services and initiatives that demonstrate those recommendations in practice.
'A Happy, Healthy Workplace: Workforce Wellbeing, Recruitment and Retention in Mental Health Services' identifies seven key aspects of staff health and wellbeing, with positive practice examples from services for each recommendation. It gives practical advice and highlights some excellent initiatives from statutory, voluntary and emergency mental health services.
