At the Community Crisis Support Team we provide support for young people age 12 to 18 when things become really difficult. Mostly we would work with you if you already receive support from another mental health team, but we also meet young people who are new to the service but need the most urgent help. We offer help to young people with severe mental health needs in the community as an alternative to treatment as an inpatient.
If you already
receive support from a mental health team then you could speak to your worker
about receiving additional support. If you are not currently receiving
mental health support then you can speak to your GP or another professional and
request a referral.
We see you either once each day or every few days depending on the severity of your condition. We attend your home, college, school or wherever you feel most comfortable. We discuss your difficulties and find the best ways of helping your recovery. We usually support you as a young person for around 6-8 weeks, sometimes more and sometimes less.

If you are interested in our service please speak to your care coordinator or consultant about treatment options. Our team is for young people already receiving support from another mental health team. We provide additional and intensive support.
We offer support with depression including low mood, sadness, crying, being anxious and worrying. We support you if you self-harm or attempt suicide. We offer support if you feel low in confidence and worthless if this is causing you severe mental health issues.
Where possible we encourage you to include a friend or family member in the support available so we can discuss any issues we are concerned about. If someone has taken on a full time carer role, or is struggling to balance their carer role with daily living, we can refer them for a carer assessment.
