An innovative pilot project which sees mental health nurses joining police on the beat has been extended to more areas in the county this week. The scheme, known as street triage, is when the police and mental health services join forces to provide immediate help and support to people who may be experiencing a mental health crisis.In the past if the police received a call about a person with a mental health problem they may have had to detain that person under the mental health act in order to get them the help they need. However, with the right support from a mental health professional there may be no need for them to be admitted to hospital or detained.Following an award winning Eastbourne pilot, funding has been secured by Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG and Crawley CCG to roll the project out in their areas for two months. During this initial period the benefits to patients, health partners and Sussex Police will be assessed.

This means that local taxpayers will pay an additional £2.79 for policing per year per household (for a Band D property).
