This programme has now ended


SIM is an approach to training specialist police officers who then work closely with community mental health teams to support service users facing complex behavioural disorders.

SIM was one of seven national programmes that was supported by the AHSN Network from April 2018 until March 2020, when the two-year national programme came to a close.

UCLPartners provided support for the local adoption of SIM as part of its NHS England-funded AHSN commission.

UCLPartners are no longer actively involved in SIM.
