Mental Health Triage and Assessment Team

The Mental Health Triage and Assessment Team provide routine mental health triage and assessment to people who are living in Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire who are registered with a local GP. The service is for 18 to 64 year olds and runs 7 days a week.

You may be referred to this service by your GP or another professional. You will be booked for a triage appointment where a clinician will contact you by phone at the designated time. This call is to establish your current needs and to identify the appropriate care for you, which may be delivered by another organisation which you are signposted to.

If your triage identifies you require a further assessment, you will have an appointment booked for this, which aims to further understand your experiences and plan what care is required in collaboration with you and your family.
