Crisis team - May 1st 2011, 06:12 PM

So i am stuck right now i have no idea what to do and don't feel safe on my own.

I was wondering what exactly happens if you ring the crisis team? I hate phones and talking on them so i wanted to know just so i don't feel as anxious about it. If i called aswell would there be a way to do it without my mom or anyone finding out?

If anyone has any experiences that they don't mind sharing that world help.

Thank you in advance :]


xxxxxxx Take care xxxxxxx

Hey,

Usually the first thing that happens when someone answers is they ask your name. After that they ask you if you are okay and have a chat to you. They wont tell your mum unless try think you are in danger of seriously harming yourself. They might also offer to come out and see you if you are feeling particularly low, it's nothing to worry about really. This is what my crisis team is like anyway and they are very friendly. I would recommend giving them a call. They can call you later as well to check up on you. When I got out of hospital they rang me every day and came round to see me one morning as well. They can also get you extra help if you need it, they are having their psychiatrist come round to see me this week to work out a treatment plan, for example.

I have seen the crisis team many times but only phoned a few times. You can just chat to them about anything you want and they will listen. Normally though when I have seen the crisis team they always have to do an assessment. I have had mixed experiences with them really.

I think you should give them a call because you have nothing to lose.

What does the assessment involve them doing?

(Sorry for asking, i am just curious so i won't be as worried about phoning)

Thank you both for the replies

I had an assessment but they came out to see me for it. It's just them assessing your needs really so it's a bit like an initial assessment when you go for counselling; they will ask you questions about how you are feeling. If you call them though it won't be an assessment . They might decide you need one but it will probably be another time

Hey

My mum had had a lot of involvement with the crisis team and got a lot of support from them and after a while when they felt no improvement they admitted her in to the 'crisis house' where there was a staff meber all the time for her.

I've had quite a bit of involvement with them too. They work along side camhs for me and stay updated that way. They planned a meeting with my camhs team, doctor, school and the a&e staff to make sure everyone knew there role and so they could give me the best support. Although I found them useless when they looked after my mum and although I have had bad experiences with them, I have found two people in the team who I get on with and feel like they are now helping. I'm having contact with them now and they are seeing me everyday.

I hope you manage to reach out to them.
Jessie

Yes the assessment is just to find out your needs really so they can help you in the best way. But if you are only going to phone them then you won't need an assessment. Hope you do manage to

I don't really know what will go on if you call, but my mother works as a social worker along side a crisis team, and I think they're there to help you and make sure you're ok... they'd probably try and set you up with CAHMS, but they're nice people =)
