What you can expect

Once referred we endeavour to meet and assess the persons needs within a two week time frame. If psychosis is identified we allocate a care coordinator (nurse/occupational therapist) to meet with the individual and family/carer with the aim of developing a therapeutic relationship to support clients needs. A care plan is developed which can include: family intervention, psychology and pharmacological intervention. Our team comprises of nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists, with close links to employment support services and social services.

Referrals

We accept referrals through Kingston and Richmond Assessment team (via GP’s etc), Recovery and Support Teams, Inpatient Wards, Psychiatric Liaison Service and Home Treatment Teams. Along with transfer of care from other Early Intervention services out of borough or perhaps shared care with people attending university.
