Access and Crisis Team

The access and crisis team acts as the single point of access for all referrals into mental health services, including primary care mental health services and older people's mental health services.

Referrals are screened and triaged throughout the day.

The function of the access and crisis team is to:
  • Act as a single point of entry which will receive, triage and direct all referrals onto the relevant service
  • Provide a comprehensive assessment for people on an urgent/priority basis and can provide follow up interventions. These people seen have consented to engage with the service.
