Assertive Outreach - CPA
The Care Programme Approach (CPA)
You may be put under the Care Programme Approach (CPA) if the assertive outreach team think you are a high risk. Or you need support from a number of different services. CPA is a framework of care that it used to organise your care and support.
On the CPA you should get a care plan and a care co-ordinator. Your care co-ordinator will be responsible for your care and support. They should review your plan regularly to check that your needs are being met. A care co-ordinator can be a social worker, community psychiatric nurse (CPN) or occupational therapist.
If you are not under CPA you can still get support from a mental health team.
