St Thomas' Mental Health Liaison Team

How our service can help you

We are a team of mental health professionals based at St Thomas' Hospital Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department. We assess people to determine if they need mental health care and treatment, and refer them to clinical services. We provide care for patients of St Thomas' Hospital.

As well as assessing and treating people who self-harm, we provide a 24 hour service to manage all psychiatric emergencies in A&E and inpatient wards. We also assess and treat those medical and surgical patients who have mental illnesses.

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. This includes crisis care and brief therapy.

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