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 a young person aged up to 18, if they are open to CAMHS, CAMHS Transition or Early Intervention team, within Pennine Care.

We have three pathways, dependent on current support and need:

Home intensive treatment, supported discharge and alternative to admission.

Home intensive treatment

Accepted from CAMHS, CAMHS Transition Teams, Rapid Respons and Early Intervention Teams.

We enhance the current community care package for young people with complex needs who are at risk of hospital admission, if they did not have an enhanced package of community care.

Supported early discharge 

We work closely with inpatient wards in identifying young people who are suitable for an early discharge pathway.

We facilitate an early discharge from CAMHS inpatient services (in and out of area) in order to reduce length of stay and enable a smooth transition back to the community.

Admission avoidance

Accepted from the Greater Manchester Assessment and Inreach Centre (GMAIC).

An alternative to general adolescent inpatient admission with enhanced support for young people with complex needs who are at risk of hospital admission.
