The CAMHS Home Treatment Team provide care to young people living in Stockport, Tameside, Oldham, Rochdale and Bury.

We can support you if you are 16 or under and in full-time education. If you are over 16 but it is developmentally and clinically appropriate for you to be referred to us, we may be able to accommodate you.

We have two pathways: supported early discharge and admission avoidance.

Supported early discharge

We offer practical intensive support to help you recover and allow you to be discharged early from acute inpatient wards. We provide short term supportive care packages to young people and their families/carers being discharged from acute inpatient wards. If you have complex needs, we also support you care coordination during your discharge process.

Admission avoidance

This involves intensive home treatment, with visits arranged depending on your needs. This means we can offer brief interventions to support your recovery and manage any risks, which reduces your chances of having to be admitted to hospital.

  • Psychosocial interventions
  • Full mental state examination and assessment
  • Risk assessment and management
  • Medical input on consultations, review, medication prescribing and management
