Bath Mind Launch Emergency Department Adult Intervention Service
Bath Mind are delighted to launch its new service, the Emergency Department Adult Intervention Service, at the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
What is the Emergency Department Adult Intervention Service?
Offering support to those who are experiencing mental health decline or crisis, our Emergency Department Adult Intervention Service is based at the Royal United Hospital in Bath’s Emergency Department. This service is available to anyone presenting to the Emergency Department with mental health crisis behaviours, low mood, depression and anxiety who is over the age of 18 years and able to actively engage in support.
Laura Rawlings, Intensive Support Manager, says:
We are so pleased to be able to offer urgent mental health support to people presenting at A&E. Bath Mind can offer you emotional support, help you to make a safety plan, and try to understand signs that you are becoming unwell. We can also inform you and refer you to resources available in the community to promote better wellbeing.
What support is involved?
We work alongside clients, offering trauma-informed person centred support to identify suitable next steps to improve their mental health. We follow up with clients within 24 hours of our first interaction and at agreed intervals thereafter.
When is the service available?
The Emergency Department Adult Intervention Service is open seven days a week from 09.00am to 6.00pm at the RUH in Bath.
