Intensive Community Assessment and Treatment Team (ICATT)

We offer short-term mental health and challenging behaviour services to adults with a learning disability who are living in the community. Our service is for adults aged over 18 with a diagnosis of a learning disability. Our multidisciplinary teams include:

  • Nurses
  • Community support workers
  • Clinical psychologists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Speech and language therapists
  • Psychiatrists

Our specialist interventions and recommendations are designed to meet the needs of individuals and their key supporters, which we identify through multi-disciplinary assessment and formulation.

We aim to deliver this support in the safest and most therapeutic environments, to reduce unnecessary admissions to inpatient services. We also support timely and effective discharges where people have required a period of inpatient care.
