A young person experiencing a crisis may be a threat to themselves or others through self-harm, suicide or aggression. Or they may be highly vulnerable to danger, for example via absconding, seeking help from people who may harm them, mis-using drugs and alcohol and behaving in a reckless, risk taking way.
We aim to offer young people the RIGHT help, at the RIGHT time, by the RIGHT person, in the RIGHT place, 100 per cent of the time.
This will dramatically improve their overall experience, along with those who care for them, and help to keep them out of hospital.
The pathway involves the development of new services, or improvements to existing services. Most of the services will be based in the community and care will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
All new developments will be based on evidence and feedback from children, young people and other key people.
There are seven key elements that make up the pathway:
The pathway is being delivered by Pennine Care, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
To ensure the success of this new pathway, we will be working closely with lots of partner organisations in Greater Manchester. This includes other NHS trusts, local authorities (councils), the private sector and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
By sharing our knowledge, skills, experience and resources, we can develop new and innovative services that are easy for young people to access and better meet their needs.
You can keep up to date with latest developments in our partner updates, or contact us at the details below.
We need exceptional and passionate staff on board to make sure the pathway is a success and that young people receive the very best care and can reach their full potential.
Over the coming months we will be offering lots of exciting job opportunities. Please click here for details of current opportunities.
