Intensive Home Treatment Team (IHTT)

We provide specialist assessment for older people experiencing complex, high-risk mental health issues.

Our team gives people the choice and ability to live as independently as possible. We believe people experiencing mental health problems are entitled to the highest quality care.

We deliver our service in people's own homes and we make every effort to prevent unnecessary admission to hospital or residential care.

IHTT provide intensive support over 8 weeks in the patient’s own home to optimise mental health and recovery.
