And know and understand what happens to people with unmet mental health needs or distress when trying to get urgent help. Don’t just read what should happen at the emergency department and in other services. Go with them at 2am as they try to navigate it. Bear witness.

Nigel Henderson: when responding to people in distress: So important to ‘hear’ rather than simply ‘listen’, and ‘connecting’ rather than ‘signposting’

Listen to police who are told to take people to the ED. Listen to crisis houses who refuse to speak to people who have recently self harmed unless they have been “medically cleared” at the ED, listen to GPs who aren’t allowed to refer directly to MH home treatment teams

"Can over professionalise the system". Need lived experience at centre. "people can be scared as PWLE tell you where you've got it wrong"!!

I worry this whole debate may be framed around the wrong question at its core - about reducing attendance and concern around rate of attendance rather than considering how best to help and considering outcomes that matter to people: morbidity, mortality, dignity, qol..

draws on evidence based work. Randomised controlled trials evaluating interventions are urgently needed, and chronically underfunded.

Inspiring to see peer support as one of the 'alternatives' in US within emergency department/A&E for people in acute distress including people who use substances - a 'no refusal' policy sounds like something for Scotland

Excellent powerful input at from Superintendent Ann Bell Police Scotland about suicide prevention & how police are focused on saving lives. Great to hear this. Police Scotland officers are so important in saving lives. Naloxone saves lives

Why do those in distress call the police or A&E? Because they are the people who always show up, even if it's not 9-5. Stark thought. Time to improve our pathways
