  • Accessing community mental health services (e.g. Community Mental Health Teams, Recovery & Inclusion Team or Early Intervention Team)
  • Accessing other secondary mental health services )e.g. Inpatients, Consultants, Home Treatment Team etc.)
  • Have accessed eligible Mental Health Alliance services within past 2 years (please check)
  • Be eligible for 12-month fast track back to secondary services

We realise this is quite a complex list so if you’re not sure whether you or the person you are representing is eligible please contact us for a chat.
