A & E Mental Health Liaison Team

A dedicated service to patients presenting at Hull Royal Infirmary or Castle Hill Hospital with self harm behaviour, acute mental illness or emotional distress.

 

The Team

The A&E Mental Health Liaison Team is a dedicated team who offer a service to patients presenting at Hull Royal Infirmary or Castle Hill Hospital with self harm behaviour, acute mental illness or emotional distress.  We also offer support and advice to minor injuries units in the area.  We are an ageless service, which means we will offer an assessment to anyone meeting our referral criteria, regardless of their age. 

It is our strong belief that managing the risk of self harm is a collaborative process.  We liaise with other services to arrange the most appropriate support and follow-up for the individual concerned, at all times involving them in the decision-making process. 

We offer a full psychosocial assessment, which is voluntary, in order to identify the person's needs, those who have a serious mental health problem, high risk of suicide, co-existing problems (such as drug or alcohol problems), or those in social crisis.  This enables us to ensure the individual receives prompt and effective psychiatric treatment and appropriate aftercare.

How to access the service

This service can be accessed by patients presenting at Hull Royal Infirmary or Castle Hill Hospital with self harm behaviour, acute mental illness or emotional distress.
