Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment

About Us

The aim of the CAMHS Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team is to provide rapid assessment and treatment of children & young people experiencing mental health difficulties.

Who can we support?

The service is aimed at those children or young people who are:

  • at immediate and significant risk of self-harm or suicide
  • experiencing acute psychological or emotional distress which is having such a significant impact on their wellbeing that their schooling is being affected
  • being considered for an admission to a mental health inpatient unit
  • posing an immediate or significant risk to others due to their mental health

Who can refer?

Referrals are accepted from GPs, mental health services involved in the child or young person’s care, school nurses, paediatric psychology, 111 services, children’s social services and Early Help.

All referrals are by telephone, providing consent has been given by both the child and their family or guardian to refer to the crisis team. Once the referral is received, the team will aim to make telephone contact with the family within 2 hours, and to assess the child or young person within 24 hours.

The service is open from 8am to 10pm daily, 365 days a year. Between 10pm and 8am, out of hours telephone support is provided by the adult crisis team.
