Service Description:
The access, assessment and brief intervention service is for adults aged 18 to 65 needing community mental health services in the London borough of Redbridge.

We provide an initial mental health assessment and once assessed we may:

- refer or signpost to other mental health services or organisations

- signpost to other services (e.g. social services)

- and/or offer brief intervention by the team for up to six months

If needed, we can offer:

- full assessment of mental health and social care needs

- access to a psychiatrist

- talking therapies and other psychological help

- advice and information

- crisis intervention

- psychiatric medication review if appropriate

- self-guided support

- support with social problems

- recovery and wellbeing approaches

We also provide a single telephone number for anyone enquiring about mental health services in Redbridge, urgent mental health assessment where needed, and management of referrals to other specialist mental health services. Our team is made up of psychiatrists, community mental health nurses, mental health social workers, support time and recovery workers and occupational therapists.
