The First Urgent and Emergency Mental Health Care Summit, jointly hosted by the Mental Health Commissioners Network, part of NHS Clinical Commissioners, UK and RI International, USA, found much in common for the two countries with both challenges and opportunities.
More than 50 leaders fully participated in the event which brought together both the United Kingdom and USA to share good practice, learn from each other, but also to develop recommendations to take back to our respective politicians and policy makers to help bring about change.
The event was a match session for the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL) exchange which took place in Stockholm, Sweden the two days following the London crisis summit.
The PowerPoint below gives a summary of the highlights of the two days, and expect a formal document that will be posted in the coming months and review the recommendations of the group (download here).
