Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team (CRHT)

What We Do

The Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team (CRHT) provide a rapid community based service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for people experiencing acute mental health crisis.

CRHT ensure that people experiencing mental health difficulties receive a service that is least restrictive and wherever possible in their home environment in order to minimise disruption to their lives this can include facilitating the early discharge of patients from the inpatient wards.

We provide a provision of intensive intervention and support in the early stages of mental health crisis.

CRHT act as gatekeepers for all admissions to the inpatient unit over a 24 hour period in order to ensure bed availability and to facilitate access for those in need.

Can anyone use this service? 

The Crisis Assessment component of the service is for adults (18 yrs and over) who are in need of an urgent Mental Health Assessment.
