Interagency collaboration models for people with mental ill health in contact with the police

Interagency collaboration models for people with mental ill health in contact with the police

BMJ Open

A systematic scoping review

We identified 13 different interagency collaboration models aimed at supporting people with mental ill health; including adults, children and different severities of condition and comorbidities. There were wide variations in the number of agencies involved within the models. All but one of these models included collaboration between the police and mental health professionals and/or services and many of the identified models included other organisations relevant to the purpose of the collaboration. We have identified models where sufficient literature exists to warrant full systematic reviews to assess their effectiveness.
