Richmond Home Treatment team
Who we are
Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Teams (CRHTT) are a community based mental health service who see adults who are experiencing a mental health crisis or require intensive home-based support and treatment. We provide care and support in the community sometimes as an alternative to a hospital admission. This enables people that we see to stay in their own home with increased support. The crisis resolution home treatment team is a short-term service for the crisis period only.
Who is the service for
Adults age 18-75 who are experiencing a mental health crisis or require intensive home-based support and treatment.

What you can expect
When someone is first referred to our service, we carry out an initial assessment to assess the individual’s mental health needs and the type of input they need. We then create a care plan which sets out the individual’s recovery goals and how our service will help them work towards these. Depending on the individual’s needs, we provide face to face contact of varying frequency and telephone contact and support.
We are a short-term service for the crisis period only, meaning the length of involvement varies from person to person.
We receive referrals from a variety of services including community mental health teams, assessment teams, inpatient wards and liaison psychiatry teams. We do not accept referrals directly from patients.
