Assertive Outreach Team

We offer assessment and care of patients with severe mental health problems who have been difficult to engage with or refuse to seek help from other services.

We are flexible in our approach and find different ways to engage with patients i.e. visiting them at a time that doesn't interfere with their daily routine.

Our teams are made up of a range of healthcare professionals including:

  • doctors
  • nurses
  • occupational therapists
  • psychologists
  • support workers
  • peer support workers

This means we can help with a range of mental health issues and also offer support and advice to families and carers.

The service is for adults aged 18- 65 with a main diagnosis of a psychotic illness. Patients over 65 who have already been accessing mental health services may also be referred.

Accessing our services
