Home Treatment Team | Redbridge NELFT

The Redbridge home treatment team (HTT) provides acute home treatment for adults aged 18 to 65 whose mental health crisis is so severe that they would otherwise have been admitted to a hospital.

This integrated service is for people with severe and complex mental and behavioural disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, and severe depressive disorder.  The service is usually provided in the person’s own home.

The service can:

  • prevent unnecessary hospitalisation
  • achieve the highest level of functioning possible in the least restrictive setting
  • facilitate more rapid discharge from an acute care setting
  • offer respite to carers from the demands of caring.

The Redbridge HTT team includes psychiatrists; psychologists; community mental health nurses; social workers; occupational therapists; support, time and recovery workers.
