Indeed. However, my understanding is that an unexpected letter (or phone message) is received, saying that the person is being referred to a “Crisis Team”, without any proper explanation – not even saying what a Crisis Team is – and that this can cause anxiety. This seems to be what happened to Marchhare, who started this thread as a result, asking: “what do these teams do?” In addition, there was, initially, only an answer machine at the other end of the line.Most people don't hear from them out of the blue. Usually you are referred and/or have an assessment by them when you call them like Marchhare had to do, where they explain it all to you.
There was a significant delay between the referral and her finding out what it was all about at the weekend, as described above. Those who send the referral message should give more detail.
