Note: The measure includes people with a crisis plan created or updated within the last 12 months.
It is best practice for each person who is on the CPA to have a crisis plan within their overall care plan. The Mental Health Act 1983 Code of Practice also makes it clear that patients, their carers and families should be involved in the care planning process so they can be involved in decisions about their care.
