The Home Treatment Team provides short-term mental health support at home to help avoid people being admitted to hospital.

We work across Sheffield and provide intensive support to our service users and their carers where there has been a significant deterioration in a person's mental health.

We know that you’re at your best when you’re at home, with your network of friends and family around you. We’ll work with you to minimise risks you’re facing and support you through your crisis.

The Home Treatment service is split into two teams working in the north and south of Sheffield and we cover the same areas as our Recovery Service North and Recovery Service South, enabling us to work closely together.

We also work closely with the Trust’s Single Point of Access (SPA) service, supporting duty and crisis assessment, as well as our inpatient wards to help promote early discharge back into the community. 

How is the service accessed?

Referrals to the Home Treatment team are made via the Recovery Service North, Recovery Service South, Single Point of Access, Liaison Psychiatry Service or the Out-Of-Hours Team

To be referred to the service you must be aged 18 to 65 and be experiencing a relapse in your mental health, or are in a crisis and likely to be admitted to hospital.

As our service is an alternative to admission, 16 and 17 year olds may have access to the service should they already be receiving secondary adult mental health care from another of services such as the Early Intervention service or our Eating Disorders team.
