London mental health models of care – competency framework

Friday 12 April 2013

The London mental health models of care seek to improve the quality and outcomes of services for those experiencing a mental health crisis, and to support those with a long term mental health condition to better manage their own mental and physical health in line with a recovery approach.

This competency framework has been developed by OPM and London Health Programmes to support the implementation of the two mental health models of care; for people with long term mental health conditions and people experiencing a crisis. The models of care require development of the skills and practices of the workforce, identifying best practice in London and building upon it.
