How our service can help you

We are a team of mental health professionals based at King's College Hospital (KCH) Emergency Department. We assess people to determine if they need mental health care and treatment.

We provide a 24-hour service to assess and treat emergencies in the Emergency Department and inpatient wards who have mental health problems.

We work closely with community-based mental health and substance misuse services, the police, and local statutory and voluntary agencies to provide mental health care and treatment.

As well working with our patients, we offer psychological care for families of people with mental illness.Ó
