Acute Mental Health Team, Melbury Lodge
Royal Hampshire County Hospital Romsey Road
The West Area Acute Mental Health Team provides intensive support for people who are experiencing an acute or crisis episode during their mental illness.
The team helps people by giving short-term, intensive periods of support within their own home or their local community in order to prevent unnecessary admission to hospital. People usually feel safer, more relaxed and recover better when in their own homes, even when theyre very unwell. The Acute Mental Health Team is there to enable independence and try to assist people to continue living as normal life as possible.
The team includes Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Support Workers and Administration staff.
The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
