Who we are

The Central Locality Team provides a locality focused model of care and treatment with improved integration with primary care. The Locality Team structure, with embedded treatment pathways allows the provision of seamless, individualised care. Referrals are received directly into the Locality Teams where they are screened, triaged with senior clinicians and allocated to the most appropriate clinicians to undertake the assessment.

What we offer

We provide a number of treatment pathways for people experiencing different mental health problems, including  Psychosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, severe depression and anxiety and personality disorders.

The aims of the Central Locality Team is to provide  multi-disciplinary Initial assessments offering advice, consultation and brief treatment. We provide short-term interventions of up to 12 weeks, as well as longer care and treatment. We offer improved enablement-focused interventions within treatment pathways e.g. goal setting, self-management, developing social networks, employment support, crisis and contingency planning.

Adults who are 18-65 diagnosed with schizophrenia, bi-polar affective disorder, psychotic depression and other psychiatric disorders.

Access to the service

Most referrals to the Central Locality team are received from GP’s, but referrals are also made by the Haringey Crisis Response & Home Treatment Teams, as well as other providers of mental health care both in Haringey and other areas.
