Assertive outreach team

The assertive outreach team works with people experiencing severe mental health conditions who find it difficult to work with other services and have a high risk of relapsing.

We are a dedicated team of staff with many different skills providing a range of flexibly delivered, evidence-based interventions.

Why would someone choose the service
