Commissioning Acute Mental Health Care: Inpatient and Crisis Home Treatment (Joint Commissioning Panel for Mental Health)

Summary

The Joint Commissioning Panel for Mental Health (JCP-MH) has produced a guide on commissioning services for people with acute mental health (psychiatric) needs. This document covers the purpose, characteristics and components of acute care services which work and support recovery.

“No part of mental health care works in isolation from other services and this guide should be read alongside other guides in this series, in particular those setting out best practice guidance in primary care mental health services, specialist community services and rehabilitation services”.
