The Assertive Outreach service employs a whole team approach that is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the most severely mentally ill clients in the community. The team is proactive in developing and maintaining a lasting, supportive and therapeutic relationship with service users and their carers. The team’s aim is to maximise individual’s strengths and abilities and acknowledge the limitations and problems imposed by their disorder.
We offer a service in the clients preferred setting, giving respect and consideration to cultural and spiritual diversity.
We work with people who have severe mental health problems who find it difficult to maintain contact with services and as a result have a history of relapse and frequent hospital admissions.
