Crisis Teams - CPA
What if I am under the Care Programme Approach (CPA)?
Mental health services might say you have complex mental health needs. If they do then you might be placed under the Care Programme Approach (CPA). This says how your mental health care should be organised.
If you are under CPA, then you should get a care plan. Every care plan should include a crisis plan. The crisis plan must say what will happen if your mental health gets worse. It will also have clear details of who is in charge of your care and support, and who to contact.
The care plan should also include what else you can do if your main crisis plan options aren’t available.
Even if you are not under the CPA, then you should still be able to get support from a crisis team.
You can find more information about ‘Care Programme Approach (CPA)’ here.
