What We Offer

Barnet Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment (CRHTT) offers short term intensive home treatment for people in mental health crisis who may otherwise need to be admitted to hospital. We can do this by supporting people in their own home or other suitable accommodation when it is safe and appropriate to do so. Our team consists of psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists and support workers.

Our Vision is to help people to LIVE...LOVE …Do as part of the trusts ‘Enablement’ strategy. We will treat you with care, compassion, respect and will always seek to work together with you and your family as well as friends to support your recovery.

We can provide:

  • Intensive short term intervention to support recovery
  • Comprehensive mental health assessment
  • Home visits
  • Diagnosis, and appropriate care plan and treatment
  • Support to access advocacy services
  • Psychological Assessment and formulation
  • A physical health check and support with social needs

Working with a multidisciplinary team based on your assessed needs, we can support your mental health wellbeing with advice, education and community engagement with your support worker.
