A Duty Social Worker will provide advice and guidance after 6 pm and up to 8 am.

Out of hours access to ‘Approved Mental Health Professionals’ and further information for people not already known to mental health services.  If the person is already known to mental health services, phone the Psychosis Promoting Recovery Team (Community Mental Health Team) for the catchment area from which the person already receives care (Lambeth Central, South, Northeast & North West).

Referral/how to contact:  Phone, although in practice it may be hard to access an urgent mental health assessment without going through a GP, psychiatrist or a Psychosis Promoting Recovery Team.

Run by Lambeth Social Services.
