The main aim of the team is to help you manage and resolve your crisis through assessment and treatment in your home environment. They also support you being discharged from a psychiatric hospital, enabling you to continue your recovery at home.
We will work closely with you, your family/carers and social networks to provide intensive support and care.
We provide 24/7 care with visits at home during the day. Outside these hours we offer telephone support.
Some of the people we see may need admission to hospital, either as a voluntary patient or by being sectioned under a section of the Mental Health Act. We will try to maintain your care at home for as long as possible.
It is recognised that people recover more quickly if treated at home in familiar surroundings. When we’re experiencing a mental health crisis, sometimes being in hospital is the best way to keep ourselves safe and make sure we get the level of treatment we need.
People that require more intensive care may be admitted to our new Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) which is due to open in January 2019.
Some people may transfer to Russell Clinic, our rehabilitation and recovery ward, where you will be supported in your recovery through a wide range of rehabilitation resources in a residential setting.
