Police & Ambulance Service - Mental Health Awareness

The Police and Ambulance Services are two professions that often find themselves working collaboratively with one another, to help a patient in a mental health crisis out of hours. It has been noted that the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) lack in training in suicide prevention and there are problems with interagency working.

Course Outline

The Police and Ambulance Services are two professions that often find themselves working collaboratively with one another, to help a patient in a mental health crisis out of hours. It has been noted that the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) lack in training in suicide prevention and there are problems with interagency working.

 

Recommendations have been made to suggest that the police force should have mandatory training available for staff and this should be developed in partnership with experts. In 2014, a report highlighted the need for ‘further education for ambulance clinicians in mental capacity, how to assess it and how to apply appropriate aspects of the mental health legislation.’ Secondary to the recommendations made in the reports for both Police and London Ambulance Service (LAS) and the evidence for simulation training, Maudsley Simulation developed this course with an aim to address these concerns.

Learning Objectives:


After completing this course those attending will:

  • have improved confidence, knowledge and skills in the recognising, assessing and management of people suffering with mental health conditions.
  • be able to understand the role non-technical skills, e.g. situation awareness, leadership, team working, play in the management of people suffering from mental health conditions.
  • have improved communication and collaboration skills within the multi-disciplinary team and between professions.
  • have raised awareness and improved management of the challenges that can arise when managing people with mental health conditions within a community setting.
