CAMHS Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team

Our service is here for young people who are experiencing a mental health crisis. This includes those who:

  • Are at risk of immediate and significant self-harm
  • Are an immediate and significant risk to others due to their mental health
  • Are being considered for admission to a mental health inpatient unit
  • Are in acute psychological or emotional distress that means they are unable to go about their daily activities, such as going to school and looking after themselves

We offer intensive home treatment for young people:

  • Who have acute psychiatric or psychological symptoms
  • Whose mental health is getting worse and who are at high risk of experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis

We also help to plan for young people who are ready to come home from a psychiatric hospital and we provide out-of-hours care for those who are already working with specialist CAMHS teams.

When a young person no longer needs support from our team, we will make a discharge plan with them and their family as early as possible, to ensure they can have a positive move to another service. Options might include moving to another community CAMHS service, another service/agency or back to universal services such as a GP or school nurse, depending on the needs of the young person.

We now operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
