Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Teams (CRHT Teams)

South Cardiff and Vale CRHT Team:
Areas covered are Links, Hamadryad, Hafan Dawel, Amy Evans and West Vale CMHTs.

North Cardiff CRHT Team:
Areas covered are Gabalfa, Pendine and Pentwyn CMHTs.

The CRHT Teams aim to act as ‘gatekeepers’ to mental health services, rapidly assessing individuals with acute mental health needs, providing immediate multidisciplinary community-based treatment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; ensuring that services are provided in the least restrictive environment, as an alternative to inpatient care for a maximum of 8 weeks; remaining involved with the client until the crisis is resolved and the client linked to ongoing care; and being actively involved in discharge planning, facilitating early discharge if inpatient care has been necessary.

  • Rapid assessment
  • Signposting to other services where necessary
  • Intensive home treatment with high frequency of visits at home where indicated
  • Nursing, social work, psychology and psychiatrist input
  • Formulation of Relapse Prevention Plans through education and collaboration

Referral to the CRHT Teams is made through the CMHTs Mon - Fri 9 - 5, and via the GP at other times.
