New York ‘Parachute’ programme for people with acute mental distress lands in the UK


NHS trusts in Kent and Medway, Nottingham, North East London and North Essex are planning to launch a £500,000 pilot next year.

They are testing them out. There has not been much research on them before - basically they are very expensive to operate and they don’t seem to “do much” from a therapeutic standpoint (in terms of proven therapies) - - so that is why there has not been much interest in them.

And we have people who have participated in Soteria before and have said it was a nightmare - so be careful with Apotheosis’s opinions - they are extremely biased in being anti-proven treatment.
