NO COPS IN CRISIS CARE.
The rollout and delivery of High Intensity Network’s SIM model needs to be stopped. It criminalises mental illness, it’s coercive, and harmful.
SIM targets those with ‘complex needs’ and ‘PD’ diagnosis. I am terrified because I ‘fit’ their criteria. It means I could be threatened with arrest for being suicidal/SH and prevented from accessing treatment (e.g. A&E, crisis services, CMHT). Mental illness is not a crime.
