Community Teams

Community Mental Health Teams

The Trust has five Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs) - three based in Bradford, one in Airedale and one covering Craven. These provide care coordination and multi-disciplinary care in service users' homes, in general practice settings and in community bases. Generally, service users will haev been referred through their GP. The team reviews and monitors clients, referring back to their GP when appropriate.
Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Teams

The Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment teams provide 24 hour care every day of the year for people in mental health crisis in their own homes. They Offer prompt and effective home treatment, including medication, to prevent hospital admission and support early discharge.
There is one team for Braford South and West and City andone team for Bradford North and Airedale. There are two Accident and Emergency liaison services, providing a link to acute hospitals, as well as self-harm assessments.
Assertive Outreach Teams

The Assertive Outreach Teams provide support to people who find it dificult to engage with other mental health services, minimising breakdown which might otherwise require admission to hospital. There is a team in Bradford and one in Airedale. This service is provided in Craven through the CMHT.

This service is a 'virtual team', operating across the CMHTs and primary care. The service provides assessment and care for people experiencing a first onset of psychosis, usually under the age of 35. The service focuses on optimising control of psychotic symptoms and providing psychological and family interventions.
