Crisis Teams - Team members
Who is in a crisis team?
Crisis teams are made up of mental health professionals.
A psychiatrist is a mental health doctor. They can assess you and give you a diagnosis. They can prescribe medication and manage your treatment.
Community psychiatric nurses (CPNs)
A CPN is a qualified mental health nurse who works outside of hospitals. A CPN will check that your care plan still works for you and offer support to you and your family. They will help you with medication.
A mental health social worker can give practical help with your social care needs. This might be help with housing, money or giving general support and advice.
Other people will also be in the team such as psychologists, support workers and administrators.
