Mental Health Assistance

The Crisis Resolution / Home Treatment (CRHT) teams work with a group of patients, who, without this support, would need to be admitted to hospital, or who cannot be discharged from hospital without intensive support. The service enables patients who are in crisis, and not able to function at their normal level, to be supported in their own homes.

Call 111 (option 2) as the first point of contact if experiencing a mental health crisis. Support is available 24/7.

You can telephone 01582 556971 or alternatively call 111 option 2
