Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team (CRHT)

The Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team (CRHT) is based at The Orchards, St James Hospital, Portsmouth. CRHT are a team of experienced mental health nurses, support workers, doctors and a psychologist. We aim to provide safe and effective home based assessments and treatment for adults experiencing urgent mental health problems. Where appropriate, these services are provided as an alternative to hospital admission. CRHT will support people by telephone, or home visit according to clinical need. Occasionally the CRHT may undertake an assessment or appointment visit at the Orchards, by prior arrangement. There is no facility at The Orchards for self-presentation, so please do not come to St James Hospital unless you have an appointment with CRHT at The Orchards.
