Intensive services

Who are we?

Our Intensive Teams consist of experienced mental health staff who offer assessment and home treatment for people aged over 16 years experiencing a mental health crisis, as an alternative to hospital admission.

The team operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week. However, the team does not provide an 'emergency' service such as a 999 response.

How to get referred

This will usually be through the person's existing mental health team, GP referral, or self-referral. If the person being referred has never been seen by mental health services previously, they may be asked to see a primary care professional first.

Intensive services

In Bristol, community mental health services are provided through Bristol Mental Health.
