USA Team going from strength to strength


The work of our team in Minnesota, USA has just been highlighted on their local TV news channel. 

We are absolutely thrilled that mental health and policing teams are now combining all over the world to provide better, integrated care.

We are also supporting staff in Denmark, Norway and New Zealand as they assess the need for teams within their health and policing networks.

Essex teams continue to strengthen


Yesterday, we led a workshop between the SIM Essex team in Chelmsford and the SHIFT Team in Southend. These multiple team workshops are starting to spring up over the network as we build multiple teams in the same region. 

We have started to standardise working practices across London and will be doing to same in both Devon and Suffolk in 2020. 

Thank you to everyone in Essex who came yesterday, including Eastern Ambulance and the 111 Service. Three key decisions made in less than 2 hours!
