Home Treatment Team – Southwark

< Back to directory

Overview

Our Home Treatment team (Southwark) provides a community-based service to support people, aged 18-65, at home, rather than in hospital. Our service helps to avoid the stress, anxiety and upheaval that can happen with a hospital admission. We support people who live in the London Borough of Southwark.

Our team includes both health and social care staff.

We determine what clinical services people need to be referred to in Southwark in order to meet their mental health needs. For people who require hospital admission, we provide a rapid secondary assessment service, but we try to treat as many people as possible at home.
