Leaving hospital after a mental health crisis

This booklet is to help you think about what support you might need when you leave hospital – so that your care plan reflects what is important to you and you can decide when it is right for you to go home.

There is space for you to write down things you want to say when you have meetings with staff to plan your care. It outlines what you should be able to expect and how to get help if you have any concerns. You’ll also find some contact details at the end of the booklet to point you in the direction of more information and support.

We talk about ‘going home’, but if you don’t have somewhere to go back to, or need to change your accommodation or to move into supported housing or residential care, this booklet could still help you think about what you might need.
