Serenity Integrated Mentoring (SIM)

Eastern AHSN is supporting the rollout of Serenity Integrated Mentoring (SIM) – providing a personalised package of clinical care and boundary setting for people in crisis, developed with specially selected and trained police officers and community mental health teams.

 Serenity Integrated Mentoring (SIM) carefully selects and trains police officers and police staff alongside their clinical colleagues. Together they learn about the trauma and triggers that lead to high intensity behaviour, they discuss how best to manage risk and how to ensure that the service user does not keep on repeating the same high risk, high harm behaviour. It is demanding and intensive work but can bring significant breakthroughs in the lives of people whose behavioural risks are likely to result in them entering the criminal justice system or even worse, dead from accidental suicide.

This is a national AHSN Network adoption and spread initiative.
