Has anyone been involved with a crisis team before? Any experiences would be great

I have been a few times although I don't know what to say about them... all they did with me was talk about what was going on for a little bit then have me admitted to hospital for inpatient care.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, maybe if you had any sort of specific question I could answer better? I'd like to add that they were all very friendly and understanding though.

Thanks. I didn't really have a specific question. They arc coming round to see me later and I just wondered what they are like and what they do

With my experience they will try to do everything to prevent going into hospital. They will come to your home and assess how you're doing, see whether you're safe and make sure that you have things in place. They came every day for about two weeks and seemed to be quite pleasant.
I know in my area that they finish about 9pm but in case of emergencies there was a 24 hour phoneline.

It doesn't really matter anymore, they aren't really going to be seeing me again because I'm only 17 and the crisis team is part of adult services. So yeah, bit pointless

I hope you have been able to find other options, however, since the Crisis Team seems to be geared only towards adults.

I found a bit of information, though its based on crisis teams in the US (specifically in New York) but I found it to be a good explaination nonetheless:

Quote:
What is a mobile crisis team?

A mobile crisis team is an interdisciplinary team of mental health professionals (e.g., nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health technicians, addiction specialists, peer counselors). Teams operate under the auspices of voluntary agencies and municipals hospitals. They respond to persons in the community, usually visiting them at home, although their mandate allows them to make contact at other locations.
What services do mobile crisis teams provide?

Mobile Crisis Team staff provide a range of services including assessment, crisis intervention, supportive counseling, information and referrals, linkage with appropriate community based mental health services for ongoing treatment, and follow up.
From the replies of others, it sounds like this is fairly accurate. However, since you're unable to utilize the services of a crisis team and will no longer need this thread to remain open, I'm going to go ahead and close it. If anyone has any questions, comments, or concerns, please don't hesitate to Private Message me.
