About the service

The Kirklees intensive home based treatment team provides rapid and intensive interventions for people with acute mental health problems in the least restrictive environment as close to their home as clinically possible.

Intensive home based treatment can be provided in a range of settings and offers an alternative to inpatient care. We have the flexibility to respond to differing service user needs over an extended working day, 7 days a week.

If hospitalisation is necessary, the Kirklees intensive home based treatment team is actively involved in the discharge planning process and, if required, provides intensive care at home to enable timely discharge from hospital.

Why would someone choose the service?

  • The team will help you to understand your experience and work with you to identify ways so that you can better manage your mental health symptoms.
  • The team support people in their own homes as an alternative to hospital admission and this helps to minimise disruption to you and your family.
  • The team are available to support you outside of normal working hours, being more flexible to meet your needs and responsive to supporting your mental health recovery.
