Our 9 Standards of High Intensity Crisis Care

All the teams on the network operate to a set of quality standards that we have devised; standards that together will ensure a consistently high quality of care, before, during and after a crisis event. This includes teams that operate independently but that are connected to the network.

4 variations of the SIM model

We are currently operating 4 different models of SIM based teams.
3 employ a police officer/staff member in a specialist/dedicated/protected role (officers can do this full time or part time).
1 employs a police officer/staff member whose main role is not managing high intensity callers but who is allocated a client alongside their MH care coordinator.
e.g. a community police officer or PCSO may have a regular crisis caller living on their beat. They complete the training course with that person's MH care coordinator and then for x number of sessions a week, they jointly engage with and support the individual.

Please see the graphic for more details.
