Authors:
CHISHOLM Anne, FORD Richard
Publisher:
Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health
Publication year:
2004
Pagination:

Place of publication:
London

The 'National Service Framework' calls for the creation of crisis resolution teams as an alternative to hospital admission for individuals experiencing acute mental health crises, and of assertive outreach teams for 'difficult to engage' people living in the community. This report focuses on the implementation of these teams, comparing sites across the country, and providing practical advice on both the benefits and difficulties of assertive outreach and crisis resolution. It highlights the importance of these teams as components of a wider system of mental health services, leading not just to the creation of discrete new services but to transformational change across the whole system.
